why do you roll your eyes ? The Latin population in America is a huge and rapidly growing market. Any major company would be a fool to ignore such a large and ready to spend market.

And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

¿Sí o No?

Oh, sí indeed. This is a really cool option actually -- mostly I just listen to Juanes for my foreign kick, but this is a good opportunity to explore a little more music!

Ah! The "Free Download" is from one of my favorite bands. However, it still shows as $0.99.

Indeed. If only Apple would start supporting the one I live in.

And lots of Americans watch Spanish-language programming and listen to Spanish-language music. Apple obviously thinks there's demand for this; otherwise, they wouldn't bother.

Sounds like apples answer to MTV 3 (tres). Lots of people like latin music. surly this will boost numbers.
PS. apple should let you buy music from any itunes site. I tried to buy some jpop from the japan store and it says i have to have a japan account, i.e. an address in japan. i know theres a curency difference but please :( apple make my jpop dreams come true :D

It's not the currency issue, it's the licensing agreements regarding the music—they're tied to local distribution deals. The decrepit record industry is still very much about localization. They haven't embraced the global nature of the Internet and its ability for worldwide commerce of media. The question is, do they think it's a priority? Or will they try to continue to keep media in different countries separate?
