Jobs hopes iTMS for Europe early 2004
”When will you bring the iTMS to Europe? First priority for us is to make it available to Windows users in the USA and this will happen before the end of the year! But, we are really commited to bringing iTMS to Europe as soon as … yesterday if we could … but the European music licensing market is very complicated. A song might be distributed by one company in the UK and a different one in France, and then another one in Germany! So we have been trying to sort thru all of that for several months already and .. we hope that early next year we will be able to offer iTMS to European users, both MAC and Windows!”
