Apple to launch ‘more than five’ new European iTunes Music Stores in October

  1. Well I for one would love to buy music through iTunes mega mall. I live in Iceland whitch is a part of Europe and for some reason Apple just keeps ignoring us. Please Apple give us the store allready!

  2. Canada has a large amount of laws dealing with the music industry. Blank cd’s are charged a tax thats suppose to go to bands (although its never been clear how that works) and it doesn’t matter if you by the blank cd for data!
