Absolutely not. We have nothing against iTunes, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll end up there eventually IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure, but it was important for us to do this in as close to a DIY manner as possible. If we were just using iTunes, we couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be doing tie-ins with physical product, monitoring our stats (live), and helping people in real-time when they have a question regarding the service. Being able to do all of those things and having such a transparent format in which to do it has been a dream come true. We all buy stuff on the iTunes store Ã¢â‚¬â€œ or AmazonMP3 or whatever Ã¢â‚¬â€œ but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not THE way artists should be connecting to fans, and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s certainly not the way someone is going to capture the most revenue on a new release.
