iTunes not releasing any music this year after December 20th
This is bizarre. A friend of mine who runs a record label tells me that iTunes are not processing any music for release after December 20th this year. Apparently the reason they give is that the company is closing over Christmas, however he tells me this restriction has not happened before. Why would such a large company close down for such a long period over Christmas? He says the restriction applies between December 21st to January 2013 inclusive....so basically artists and labels cannot release any music this year after the date of December 20th.

Re: iTunes not releasing any music this year after December 20th
I hope it's bullcrap because I'm in the process of finalizing things for my first release. It will probably be another month or so before I am finished, but that would put a major cramp on do-it-yourself artists like me.

Since when has the likes of an enormoglobalcorp like Apple closed down for 2 weeks just because it's Christmas. OP has already said that this hasn't happened before. Thursday 20th thru to Monday 24th are likely to be the busiest shopping days of the year in the run up to Christmas, not to mention people buying redeemable gift cards in the sales after Christmas with money received as a Christmas gift.

OP is right, this is bizarre.

Re: iTunes not releasing any music this year after December 20th
I sell music on iTunes and confirm this to be true.

Essentially, iTunes is not allowing anyone to submit music to be uploaded into their system during those dates; however, it is still publishing music that was set to go live during that period but submitted before the deadline.

iTunes takes about 72 hours to process and upload material into their system. So, if you submitted something on December 19th, it would still post up on December 22, but if you submitted something on December 23, it would not post up until January.
