– RealNetworks said today that it sold more than 3 million songs during its three-week “Freedom of Choice” promotion, which slashed song pricing at the company’s music store to 49 cents and album pricing to $4.99. The company boasted that its digital music market share rose to 20 percent from 10 percent thanks to the sale, and that Apple’s 70 percent share dropped to 60 percent. But Apple quickly responded to rebuff Real’s claims. “iTunes is currently selling around 4 million songs per week and over 16 million songs per month,” Apple said in a statement given to MacMinute. “During the last 3 weeks we did not see any drop in our market share, and our sales grew each week.”
