    From here:

    Plus it gets better (or worse, depending on your viewpoint).

    So basically, at the moment, iPods are useless in NZ. You can't legally copy your CDs onto them, and you can't copy online downloads onto them either!

    I suppose I should put some sort of conclusion or justification here, but I'm actually at a bit of a loss for words. Your thoughts please. :)

    If you're like me, and don't collect music that you'd find on the iTMS or CDs, then this becomes a non-issue. That is a problem, though, if you happen to live in New Zealand and are waiting for an iTMS there.
