That's terrible. I heard Ireland doesn't get it either. Their own turf!

iTunes can be a very odd thing. They can't handle any kind of conversions so I've been unable to buy the Band Aid 20 single off of the UK version of the site because I'm supposed to only buy off of the US one.

Really? Can't you just buy it off the official Band Aid site? Since there's no iTunes here, I just bought the CD single at HMV the other day. I think the original version is much better.

Due to release dates and all that fun stuff, the record company has no plan to release the Band Aid 20 single in the US at all. The only way to get it over here is to find it as an import and, since there are a lot of people trying to get this single, those import copies don't last too long on the shelves.

This has nothing to do with "conversions" and everything to do with Apple having to license the music they sell through the music labels. Different countries mean different agreements with the appropriate music labels for each country and that in turn means people can only buy music through the (country) store of their residency :(

If iTunes is not available in a particular country it can means one of two things: 1) Apple hasn't had a chance to make arrangements with the music labels operating in that country or 2) the music labels in that country are holding things up.

It sucks but you can only blame it on the big music labels. not on Apple and certainly not on U2.
