However, if people want music put out under Universal, they can just get it somewhere else. Sure Universal will lose some sales by not being a part of a major distribution channel like iTunes, but iTunes is just that, a distribution channel. Like buying a loaf of bread from any supermarket, there are plenty of other channels people can go through. Even Jobs said they've only sold 25 tracks per iPod, so people must be getting a lot of their content from other channels.
Actually I'd disagree:
Sure there are lots of other channels through which to purchase music, but the iTunes Store is the only channel through which to sell content that works with the iPod / iPhone.

Most people I know are more interested in the device than the content.
