    Can anyone provide some advice and/or information about selling music online? I know lots of people use places like iTunes, however, I don't own any i-systems, so I don't know what is all involved when selling at the Apple stores. Are there other places other than iTunes that people prefer to buy their music? Is there anything involved that I would need to know before I begin to do do this?

    CD Baby or Tunecore. That's how you get on iTunes, eMusic, Amazon (MP3, which is different than the physical product side), etc.

    You mean selling your own music or someone elses music?

    Amazon sells music as well, though you can't buy their music anywhere else but US, UK and Germany. iTunes is by far the best place to my knowledge. iTunes also recently released web interface to their store so you can browse music on-line, though for buying you still have to use iTunes app.

    No it's music that my composer created, and I'm looking into possible places to have the full soundtrack available for purchase online.

    I figured as much that iTunes would be the more popular choice, but what's the distribution/legal rights that Apple has/does when you sell stuff through them?
