Metallica, E! and WB on iTunes

CNN reports that Metallica has finally decided to allow digital distribution of their music on the iTunes Music Store. Metallica made headlines in 2000 for being vocal against online piracy and for suing Napster and a number of universities for promoting piracy.

Other notable additions to iTunes have included E! Entertainment shows and WB shows. Of note, the Pilot episode of Aquaman is being offered. This episode is unique in that it represents a rejected series originally intended for the Fall 2006 season.

Aquaman, developed for the outgoing WB, and rejected by the incoming CW, was the biggest curiosity piece brought to iTunes as part of a new deal between the Apple Computer service and Warner Bros.

Aquaman is the #1 selling show on iTunes today and has been doing well since its release on iTunes.
