    Well the European Union and Europe at large agrees with Apple on a single shop-stop
    market. Even so, they still haven't managed to set terms or agreements (that being Europe).

    So if your can't come to terms in a unified market has Europe then you'll not going to be able to have a North America, South & Central America, South Asia or Australasia market before
    you get your Global market shop?

    Actually in Europe, our single market doesn't cover every commercial space per say - we have a common agricultural policy, a common fisheries policy to name a few, but we don't as of yet have a single market for telecommunications or digital products. The former is currently being worked on by our Vice President for the Digital Agenda, but the centerpiece there is an abolition of mobile roaming fees across the EU member states.

    I think we're a long way from a unified European iTunes Store, but I don't think it's out of reach...
