Record company delays Australian iTMS launch

An agreement with one major record company is reportedly holding up the launch of the Australian iTunes Music Store, which was expected to debut last week alongside four new European stores.

“A source said yesterday Apple had planned to launch an Australian version of its popular online music store last Thursday, as widely touted, but the launch was thwarted by one unnamed major record company that refused to sign an agreement in time,” reports The Courier-Mail.

“The hurdle reportedly forced Apple to cancel radio advertisements ordered for the date, and it is expected to delay iTunes’s launch by days, or possibly weeks, as song and album prices and payments are negotiated with the holdout label,” the paper added.
