It seems some people in Europe don't mind the tying of songs and players.

i hope someday we get the iTMS here in LatAm. Probably Mexico, Brazil and Argentina could be likely candidates if that were to happen.

Again, licensing issues arise. with the lower income of most of those places as well, it may not pay for Apple at this time. Even 99 cents a song may be too much.
