National borders suck by Simon Sharwood

Filed under: Dotmusic, I like this band because

One of my favorite bands, They Might Be Giants, has a new album out.

It’s being sold exclusively on iTunes for a few weeks before the CD emerges – hurrah!

But only iTunes USA so far – booooooo – because even though the Internet is global, record distribution deals are local.

How dumb is that?

National borders suck.

I bet by the time the kids have iTunes accounts of their own, this stuff won’t be an issue any more. But I’m not going to bet a lot!
