Two developments in the wake of NBC Universal's (GE) weekend exit from Apple's (AAPL) iTunes store:
Ruport Murdoch's Twentieth Century Fox (NWS) is reported to be "actively negotiating" with Apple to put new releases and catalog titles on iTunes beginning in early 2008. According to Rich Greenfield at Pali Research (link; activation required) several things have changed to break the deadlock, including growing levels of movie piracy and new flexibility on MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 4, 2007 9:04 AM ET
