iTunes Music Store lands in Italy

San Jose – In the past few hours, Apple has launched its iTunes Music Store online music store in Europe, including Italy. European users can already log into the shop to buy songs for 99 euro cents each.

“We are thrilled to make the iTunes Music Store available to many more music fans in Europe, and with this extension of the service we are reaching customers in nearly 70 percent of the global music market,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Applications. “ITunes is the first online music store in the world, with over 150 million downloads and a market share of over 70 percent in the US and England.”

The European iTunes Music Store features over 700,000 songs from all four major majors and over a hundred independent labels and exclusive tracks from a wide variety of major artists worldwide, including songs by Anastacia, Marc Anthony, Andrea Bocelli, Black Eyed Peas, Destiny? S Child, Duran Duran, Keane, Bob Marley, George Michael, Gianni Morandi, Nas, La Oreja de Van Gogh, Laura Pausini, The Prodigy, Gwen Stefani, Travis and Zucchero. The European iTunes Music Store offers the series of exclusive in-studio iTunes Originals including recording sessions and exclusive interviews with LL Cool J, Jack Johnson, PJ Harvey and Sting.

With the same personal usage rights that already characterize the store in the US, UK, France and Germany, the European iTunes Music Store gives users the ability to upload songs and listen to them on up to five computers, to burn a single song on CD an unlimited number of times, burn the same playlist up to seven times and listen to your music on an unlimited number of iPods.
