Sony Music Japan licenses domestic catalogue to iTunes

Tom Pakinkis

Sony Music Entertainment Japan (SMEJ) has licensed its domestic catalogue to iTunes.

The move comes seven years after the Apple store was launched in Japan.

Sony Music Entertainment Japan’s international music catalogue was only made available via iTunes in February this year.

Tracks are DRM-free and will cost 250 Yen (approx. £2) while albums will be on the store for 2000 Yen (approx. £15.70).

SMEJ is part of Sony Music Group in Tokyo, which operates independently of the worldwide Sony Music Entertainment.
