Written by Jari Ketola @ 09 Jun 2003 15:47

Apple has confirmed that it has held a private briefing to some 150 representatives of independent record labels. Apple is seeking to increase the selection of music available at iTunes. So far only music from the five major record labels has been available.
According to Derek Sivers', founder of independent record distributor CD Baby, notes Apple CEO Steve Jobs confirmed at the briefing that Apple would not start offering a "pay-to-play" scheme to record labels. Instead they have an editorial staff that decides which music gets featured in the store.
