News sources including CNN are reporting that Metallica has opted not to sell its songs on Apple’s newly successful iTunes 4 pay-per-download service claiming that they want to sell their entire album not just the individual songs. This decision comes after Metallica’s public opposition to Napster and other peer to peer file sharing systems that allow people to swap copywritten music files without paying per download. Apple allows users to buy a limited amount of albums on its iTunes 4 system but representatives from Metallica’s management company tell CNN that Apple’s policy is to only sell albums from artists who allow them to sell their singles too.
