Sony BMG catalogue available on iTunes AU, ends wrangle

When iTunes Music Store (iTMS) opened in Australia in October last year, Sony BMG was missing from iTunes music catalogue.
According to Australian IT, Sony BMG announced that it would make its catalogue available through iTunes Australian music store.

Apple was "delighted" to have Sony BMG artists on board. Sony BMG's catalogue is available on iTMS AU now.

It is believed that Sony BMG disagreed with Apple on pricing.

However, it's understood Sony BMG has not always been so keen on a relationship with Apple, with protracted negotiations between the two companies largely responsible for several delays in the launch of the local iTunes service.
