Apple iTunes Sells 50M Songs in Europe

Apple’s globalization of iTunes appears to be moving right along. According to the press release:

“iTunes Music Stores were launched in the UK, France and Germany in June 2004, and now operate in 17 European countries including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. The European iTunes Music Stores have catalogs of over one million songs each, and feature content from all major music companies and over 1,000 independent record labels.”

Now we wait for Apple to tackle Asia. Sites for Australia, New Zealand, and Japan are expected this year.
