No iCloud and iTunes Match in UK Until 2012?



A spokesman for Performing Right Society, a UK Based organization that represents composers, has said that iCloud and iTunes Match will be unavailable until “at least” the first quarter of 2012. Various reports from music executives in the UK commented that negotiations with UK record labels are at a “very early stage” and are “a long way off from any deals being signed.”

Other international countries will most likely experience the same wait. For example, it took over 6 months for the iTunes Music Store to launch internationally in 2003 after it was launched in the United States.
