European iTunes Music Store delayed

Apple’s attempts to launch a European version of its iTunes Music Store have been held up until next year by disputes between record labels and their artists over licensing, according to The Independent. Pascal Cagni, vice-president of Apple’s European operations, told the publication: “In Europe the legal environment [for licensing songs for download] is more complicated than in the US, so the one-price-fits-all system that the US uses is difficult to do here. And the major labels themselves haven’t sorted out their rights.”
