Why DID Apple Create the iTunes Music Store?

Now think about this: If you buy your songs from the brick-and-mortar record store, or if you buy them from the iTMS, or if you copy them from your “friends” on your favorite darknet or public peer-to-peer network of choice, Apple’s still going to sell you an iPod to play them…. By getting into bed with the record labels and offering a way for people to download songs legally, Apple has given the labels very little ground to stand on as Apple trudges forward selling every song-pirate their favorite MP3 player.
