itunes turn down pics

While I’ve calmed down my original rant here’s some pics

This is some interscope europe rap group. They show up in us itunes but aren’t purchasable. One thing I have noticed though is that American labels seem to be available everywhere, but European labels are confined to just their country:

Why iTunes sucks ass

Ok this is pissing me off. There’s a new Brigitte Fontaine single up on itunes france. But when I click to buy it it tells me my account can ONLY buy stuff in the u.s. Ok Apple first you restrict the number of times I can burn a file, NOW I CAN’T BUY IMPORTS? WTF? I remember when Kekeland came out and I ran to Virgin’s Megastore in Orlando to buy it and they told me they didn’t have it, then weeks later it showed up in abudance. I thought the point of internet music exchange was to ALLOW us a greater freedom in buying stuff, not to restrict us to the bull shit our country produces. When I heard about itunes I was hoping I could buy shit loads of japanese re-issues and french singles and stuff, instead it’s more restrictive than your average indie store. This is ridicilous. If I click on the flag in itunes I can cruise through other country’s music BUT I CAN’T FUCKING BUY IT? Fuck this, I mean seriously. I will never buy an Apple product again, this is complete bullshit. Please let me buy the music I want, I don’t want some virtual rules strangling away the freedoms the internet is supposed to enjoy. I mean my only option to get this song now is to download it from p2p (it’s not available in the u.s.) BTW I just searched the itunes U.S. store and they don’t even have Brigitte Fontaine in stock.
