French website ElectronLibre is reporting that Apple will be set to launch the iTunes video store in France later this month (Google English translation).

Apple has signed contracts with seven major international and local studios, including Paramount and Disney, of course, but also EuropaCorp, the production house of Luc Besson.

If true, France would join Canada the U.K. and Germany as the 4th international iTunes store to provide video.

Movie/Music/Broadcasting studio's really have to change their current model. It's way too restricting and holds back innovation. Crap like DRM, DVD Region codes, etc. are a burden for the honest consumer, a burden for companies like Apple, and it actually promotes piracy. And for what? Control? Meanwhile the studio's are missing opportunities to make money.
