Actually, it's the USA music industry and their sponsored legislation
that causes the problems. Due to the US Music Industry thinking on-line music is all pirate download they got their bought parrots in the US Congress to pass legislation to make it unlawful for anyone to take any action that stops their anti-piracy measures working - even when what they put in is a rootkit, the laws can see you arrested for taking action to remove it. In most other countries you can legally take measures to stop their DRM etc from working, thus the US music industry is against allowing any on-line music service to access their stuff except in a country that supports their draconian measures. The sad thing is the cost of doing what they're doing greatly exceeds any small profit they may be losing through piracy.
