    I am on US iTunes now to use iTunes Radio / iTunes Match.

    When iTunes Match and rRadio becomes available in Japan and I change my US address to my Japanese address will iTunes/Apple Japan inherit the US acct info like matched iTM songs and iTunes radio stations? It's still the same Apple ID (for iTunes store) so it should wouldn't you think?

    Doubt it since copyright holders and contracts will be deferent in another country.

    iTunes won't let you change the country associated with your account if you have an active Match subscription (or active TV show season passes).

    Really? Interesting. I'm using iTR in Japan because I have a US iTunes acct but I guess I better wait until iTM and iTR are officially in my country. I have the feeling this is going to take a while. Maybe a x-mas surprise - iTM / iTR in the usual G7 circle.

    You might keep the same ID but it will change what music and movies are available in your country... It is a drag...
