According to The Mac Observer report, iTunes has 80% of online music market in UK.

Apple Computer announced Wednesday that the iTunes Music Store has an 80% market share of permanently owned digital music sales in Great Britain, making it the dominant online location for downloads.

The announcement comes less than a week after Virgin and HMV launched independent digital music services in the U.K. for Windows users only. Apple said the results come from the Official UK Charts Company (OCC), who is responsible for collecting and managing the UK's official music and video charts.

Congratulations to iTunes Music Store.
