iTMS Japan, a little more wait

According to The Mac Observer and The Register, the Japanese iTunes Music Store will take a little be longer. It appears that the labels are not happy.

Japanese record labels oppose selling individual tracks for anything less than 200 yen, almost double the 99 cents Apple charges its U.S. customers and more than 50 percent higher than European iTunes Music Stores. Labels are also resistant to granting users the ability to burn tracks to CD, fearing that capability, especially when combined with lower prices, will cannibalize CD sales.
