Apple's European iTunes store has quickly reached 50 million song sales since its opening this June in the UK, France, Germany, and a host of other European nations. Music lovers have flocked to the fledgling service, downloading their favorite songs to transfer to the wildly popular iPod.
Since its opening over two years ago in the United States and subsequent openings across the globe, iTunes has sold over 430 million songs worldwide, reaching 70 percent of the music market. "We'd like to thank European music fans for making iTunes such a success" said Eddy Cue, vice president of Applications at Apple.
