iTunes Offers Refund on Music

Many people who live in the UK, Germany, Italy, France and many other EU countries will be able to return an app, music, or iBook from iTunes up to two weeks after purchase. No questions asked.

The terms and conditions state: “”If you choose to cancel your order, you may do so within 14 days from when you received your receipt without giving any reason, except iTunes Gifts which cannot be refunded once you have redeemed the code.”

This changes a lot of how the music industry could sell music. It’s too early to say if people could purchase music, store it someplace off their iTunes, and then get a refund. iTunes may have a defense against this, but this still affects the music industry on a bigger scale. It’s easy to see how a music chart ranking the most downloaded songs could be askew if it doesn’t factor in refunds on music.

While it is generally a good thing when a company says it will refund purchases with no questions asked, this time there are questions to ask. Everyone will have to wait and see how this affects everyone. Let us know in the comments below what you think about this new
