iTunes Music Store: Made in iTunes Section

http://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogo.gif

A new section on the iTunes Music Store home page, with a heading of "Made in iTunes," has appeared in the stores for some countries.

It appears that Apple is adding them country by country. As of the start of Tuesday June 20 (midnight Pacific time), 11 of the 21 stores showed the new section in the bottom right corner of the home page. So far, the section is empty in all stores, with only its heading showing.

The section title is "Fatto da iTunes" for Italy, "Hecho en iTunes" for Spain, and "Made in iTunes" (English) for all other stores.

Countries with the new section as of the time of this posting: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.

Countries without a Made in iTunes section: Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, UK, and USA.

it means apple's going to get sued again! settlement with apple corps specifically prohibits entry into music biz. court found itunes in compliance, since it is merely a retailer. once apple starts signing/distributing/marketing their own musicians, the apple corps will pounce again. let's hope they know what they're doing.

Yeah, that's kind of what I'm wondering about, too. Steve may have used his magic to negotiate, however...

Could be related to playlists/iMixes instead of actual songs. Or simply a typo/misinterpretation. I doubt Apple would put a synthesiser/mixer/studio into iTunes

It's probably going to be some kind of way for unsigned bands to post their music free. This wouldn't make Apple open to any litigation... If they charged musicians, they would act as a label. This they could get sued for. Free with no contracts? That's not a music label.. No case..

They can't get sued for podcasts, can they?

iTunes Live from London

Here in the UK, bands perform at the London Apple Store and the recordings are sold in the iTunes Live from London section. Perhaps it has something to do with that?

Not in the US store for me anyway, but how long has that "Free Downloads" box been hiding down in the lower left? I'm of course aware of the Free Single of the Week, but it also includes a "Discovery Download" -- is this really old news that I just missed, or something new?

As for the "Made in iTunes", if it's a way for free music distribution by garage bands, then today will mark the begining of the end for the stranglehold huge record labels have on music distribution. They'll always be around as marketing machines die hard, but the first step was the relative ease with which an indie band can get on iTunes through 3rd party services, and the 2nd step would be uber-easy access for the up-and-coming.

At that point, if iTMS popularity continues to grow at the current rate, there won't be much need to sign with a major label in a few years. Nobody bands will have a forum to get started, those good enough who want funding will get just as much exposure with a little label as a big one, and those who go indie will be able to stand next to the big guys.

I don't think it's good for the iTMS to be too powerful, but really its going to take one equal opportunity "everybody knows it" service to get things rolling. That, and watching Apple kick around the RIAA labels is ever so sweet.

FYI, I believe indie artists can already bypass the conventional labels and get onto iTunes, via services like RainDog and CDBaby.

Would it make sense to alter this version and then release the next (as a download)? Nah.

iTunes 6.0.3

When Apple announced the iPod nano/Nike+ kit, wasn't there a mention on the site about iTunes 6.0.3 being available for download soon?

Has this been released yet? Perhaps this could be part of that update.

EDIT: Just checked the Nike + iPod site (http://www.apple.com/ipod/nike/sync.html) and confirmed that is states that it requires iTunes 6.0.5 (not 6.0.3 like I thought) which is said to be available soon

Seeing the i-Mixes are getting too burdensome to find anything this may be a new user sharing system.

I think we'll have to wait and see, but what strikes me most is the wording: it's not made FOR iTunes, but IN iTunes, so the most logical meaning, bands releasing iTunes-only albums might not be it. Also strange to add a blank tab in iTunes, with no reason at all.
I'll be watching this closely

On the bright side: finally something in Belgium you don't have in the US/UK or any other video buying country.
Maybe that's got something to do with it

Any connection between those two? video on made in iTunes?

This makes no sense what so ever, unless iTunes suddenly gets a way to compose music

unless they are demo songs or give-aways, no?

isn't it great that the mac community gets all excited just because of 3 words?

when was the last time this happened in the pc world?
