Australian iTunes Delayed...

The Courier Mail reports that the rumored iTunes Music Store which was expected to be launched last Thursday was delayed by one major record company:

A source said yesterday Apple had planned to launch an Australian version of its popular online music store last Thursday, as widely touted, but the launch was thwarted by one unnamed major record company that refused to sign an agreement in time.

Apple consequently had to cancel radio ads for the expected launch. Several Australian users have been able to purchase select songs via iTunes for $1.69.

The status of the other planned international iTunes music stores is unknown.
