Blame Royalty Demands

So, why is it that the Canadian market, brethren to the American market doesn’t have iTunes Music Store? Maybe you should ask the Canadian Music Reproduction Rights Agency Ltd. (CMRRA). They have decided to set the royalties for online music sales well above the rate set out for CDs, from 7.7¢ to 10¢ per song. This is much higher than other regions such as Europe who collect 8¢. This seems to be a much clearer reason for the launch of a European iTMS than a Canadian one. As it stands, it looks like the newly reborn Napster will be the first to join the Canadian market from another market. So the Record Industry and the CMRRA are at odds as to how much to charge, as a result it may still be a long while before we see services such as iTunes in Canada.
