  1. because maybe our new president doesn’t want to do business with you. a shame i know. i have no problems with canadians, but you have to have alberta do something about their beer pricing a bit overboard ya say? not sure if its a countrywide problem.

    Why does Apple need to go through complicated negociations with national author’s rights collecting agencies for shows/movies that are produces ELSEWHERE (e.g., in the US).
    Can’t Apple compensate these authors and producers directly?
