Abstract:

The case deals with iTunes, an Internet-based music retailing service launched by Apple Computers in early 2003. It provides detailed information about the changing dynamics of the music industry and analyzes the circumstances that led to the emergence of the online music distribution business. It also examines the impact of online music services on the industry in light of the problem of growing music piracy. The efforts made by several companies to launch legal services, and the reasons for their failure, are explored.
