iTunes Match Not Coming To UK Until 2012
Music users of US will be able to subscribe to Apples iTunes Match service, but it looks like our friends from UK will have to wait a longer lofting their libraries up to the cloud. According to the sources within British recording industry, licensing negotiations between Apple and countrys major labels have only begun and will not be concluded until 2012. Speaking to Telegraph, Forrester Research Vice president Mark Mulligan said Apples cloud music service will not launch in the UK until at least quarter one of 2012. These types of negotiations take a long time. For one thing the UK arms of all the major record labels are biding their time and waiting to see how the service affects download sales in the US before they sign up to anything.
