where do you live? itunes music store usually lets you at least listen, but I guess it depends on your country. I know that the UK recently got ITMS.

Even though our country is tiny in relation to the USA or Canada, us Brits like to be noisy and high profile on the 'net... perhaps that's why we managed to get ITMS quicker. You Canadians should do the same

Oh, and by the way, most european countries don't have 25 nukes, including Luxemburg, where the eurpean iTMS is based...
So that definitely isn't a criteria to get iTMS. :cool:

It took quite a while before the iTMS came to Europe, and this mainly due to negociations with the music industry. I guess it's the same problem for Canada...

so, just be patient... :headphone

actually, a way that Ive found useful, if you find a friend in the US that you TRUST, such as myself,(not saying to use me), they can register a new ITMS account with your info, name, credit card, and such, then they purchase music using their mac, signed in with the account you used, or they buy music for you, and send it to you.

You can use any ITMS from any country. All you need to "purchase" music is a valid credit card which has its billing address in a country in which ITMS has a store.

Cloudane, your country is definitely not smaller than Canada. Well, in terms of area, yeah, much much smaller, but few people look at area. Military-wise, Britain is MUCH more powerful than Canada, and its economy seems to be stronger too. It also possesses 200 nuclear weapons. And its population is nearly twice that of Canada's. So, unless you're talking about area (which is pointless in a discussion about the countries where the iTunes Music Store gets featured), I really don't think your country is smaller than mine....
