    The idea that music purchased over a cell network should cost more for a consumer is completely arbitrary. It will be interesting to see how long consumers put up with the current cell based music prices.

    That said as consumers we have put up with paying more when convenience is involved in many other cases.

    The problem is probably not only the label but the mobile operator requiring a share of the download.

    Many of them (in the US and Latin America) already have mobile music services which will be cannibalized by iTunes.

    Operators are used to get 40-60% of each mobile content sale and that is not viable under the iTunes model. That may be a problem.
