Buying in ITUNES Store USA for non americans

Postby alemax6 » Mon Oct 09, 2006 5:38 am

hi guys...i wanna ask u a question...there are 2 songs performed by jakob dylan in the first 2 episodes of six degrees (the tv show)...those are 'here comes now' and 'stardust universe'...i couldn't find out any of them in anyone place...i found them only on Itunes store USA, where i cannot buy...cause i'm not american...does anyone know how can i solve this situation?

I tried to search on the web but it seems taht non-americans have no way to buy on foreign ITUNES store...is there anyone who could buy the song for me? (it's only 1$)..obviously i'd send the money to this person before....

Download the first two episodes.. and make sure you have them in avi(XVID). And you can use a program to rip the audio out of it, and encode to mp3. Then use a mp3cutter to cut the song out. There be a release on the OST that may be coming out, as well as the song will be drm free and placed on the web soon enough.

I thought aboout advising that, but that's just too much work for 2 songs!

What about just changing your credit card address to somewhere in the US? Make the purchase & change the address back.

EDIT: for my own use, have any advice on a good mp3 cutter? The one I was using sucked.

well...i already cut the song from avi, it's only one minute, then then the speech comes out...about the second attempt...i don't think i can change the info of my credit card (for the records - a prepaid card that works on the VISA circuit)...to be honest i never heard it could be possible...is it??

ps. i also have a paypal account and i tried using it...but without any success...itunes's still asking me a USA bank-card...

apple says

I have heard that it works anyway

This whole thread is a typical example of the music industry's incompetence in the digital world.
A guy in Italy wants to PURCHASE an iTunes song, and cannot. So what does he have to do? Use P2P.
Wake up and smell the coffee, music industry.

another reason why they will never stop filesharing or get people to stop sharing files.

want to purchase something you can't
so you have to find alternative ways of obtaining

i swear they walk around with their eyes closed bouncing from wall to wall to wall to wall

people will never give up filesharing for one simple reason they know the industry will not and cannot provide us with what we want when we want just like this guys example.

and if we did stop filesharing people would realise now and in the future they've just closed the door to ever being able to get something the industry wont provide full stop.

shawnspree very kind of you to help a fellow slycker :)
