    iTunes is beta 4 now...

    Mind you it was Europe that gave the world the stupid concept of extending a copyright 75 years beyond a persons death.

    You are right to be upset but until you demand a clear up of this mess by the government it will only get worst. There is little Apple can do about it.

    What the heck do Unions and "associations" have to do with it?

    It's big labels -- that's who owns the lions share of copyrights, the only thing a Union might do is fight for the actual TALENT getting some money.

    >> In my opinion, the problem is pretty simple; there are a lot of countries and different rules that make up Europe. There are different languages and way's of doing things. The USA was the first because it was the largest area of profit with the most homogenous way of doing things -- NOT the easiest by a long stretch.

    Apple has the huge burden of paving the way, and trying to come up with a consensus, so that iTunes doesn't change rules and prices when you go 100 miles in any direction -- that is a HUGE undertaking. And so far they've been amazingly successful.

    It's just going to take time...

There's no amount of EU regulation going to change that because to change it would imply changing previous contracts.

    If a law is based on a treaty signed in 1886 there must be a reason. Read on in wikipedia and you will read the following:

    "under the provisions of Article 36 which allows for restrictions on trade between Member States if justified by the protection of industrial and commercial property (including copyright)?. Now, why would that be?
