Millions of music downloads sold in Europe Even though the sales figures of On Demand Distribution, or OD2 are nowhere near those of iTunes and likes, a sales record of three million sold song downloads for 2003 is nothing to be ashamed of.
OD2's concept is different from those of its American counterparts, since it is only licensing its technology to third parties, who promote and sell the content on their pages. OD2 currently has 30 retail partners in Europe, including HMV and MSN.

European digital music market will change radically in 2004 as both Apple iTunes and Roxio Napster2 are expected to launch services in Europe by summer.
