“The licensing team at the PRS have started talks with Apple, but are a long way off from any deals being signed. It is very much the early stages of the negotiations and is similar to the launch of iTunes, which began in the US and took a while to roll out to other countries,”
iCloud was first announced at WWDC this week from which the service uses cloud based storage in order to back up and share data between the users iPhone, iPad and computer, iTunes Match however is the service which allows you to backup your iTunes music library to the cloud even if you haven’t purchased the tracks for a set fee.
What do you think about this? Will you use this service? Why do you think it takes longer in the UK than US?
