The Managing Director of independent label Odessa Mama Records addresses the “Apple iTunes 99c question” in our “Opinion” section today.
“This issue has been in the news for the last couple of weeks.

With almost 15 years experience of running one, I think that the majority of my peers will agree with my views.”
