China Blocks iTunes Over Tibet Album?

CWmike writes "iTunes customers who live in China have been blocked from accessing the online music store, say reports posted on Apple's Web site. Although some Chinese customers have speculated that authorities have barred the site because it recently started selling "Songs for Tibet," a compilation featuring musicians such as Sting and Alanis Morissette, an Apple spokesman in the U.S. declined to comment. A company spokeswoman in Beijing, however, told Reuters that the company was aware of the problem but did not provide any additional information. "ITunes is not being blocked in China from our end," one Apple tech support representative replied to a comment about blocked access, "but access to the iTunes Store IS restricted in some areas in China.""
