iTunes Music Store Back In China…. Minus Tibet LP


Here’s the good news: Those in China can now get the iTunes Music Store again.

Here’s the bad news: You can’t get that Tibet LP (iTunes link). But at least we know why they blocked it:

“An article on, a new Web site operated by the Chinese government’s Internet Information Center, said “Songs for Tibet” had “ignited strong indignation” among Chinese Web users. Some users said they would boycott Apple products, including the popular iPhone, which is so far unavailable in China, the article said.”

The moral of the story: China doesn’t like freedom of speech and those who speak up for those who can’t. Too bad.

P.S. Buy the album and support freedom of speech.
