Apple’s iTunes in iCloud ‘won’t launch in the UK this year’ by the Telegraph

Just what I feared, the UK once again drag­ging feet and scared of the Tech­nol­o­gy. The one thing I don’t under­stand is this quote:

Mark Mul­li­gan, vice pres­i­dent and research direc­tor at For­rester Research, said: “Apple’s 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.”

I’ll be more like­ly to buy from iTunes for ease of access than I ever have been, but of course, the record labels believe every­one is a thief and will always down­load ille­gal­ly if it means pay­ing $25 a year to get those files includ­ed in the avail­able any­where access.
