This article reports that EMI has struck a deal with 7digital for the downloading of the music of Radiohead and the music will not be available on Apple's iTunes Music Store. Radiohead wishes to make their albums only available as complete entities and iTunes insists that the albums be unbundled so consumers can buy just one track. EMI is in a tough place as it has offered its entire digital catalogue for the iTunes Plus format but doesn't want to alienate Radiohead.
