Apple Says Company Not Planning to Stop Selling Downloads in the iTunes Store in the Next Two Years

I reported yesterday a claim by Digital Music News that Apple was planning to stop selling downloads on the iTunes Store within two years. According to Re/Code, this is not true. Apple spokesperson Tom Neumayr has said “Not true.”

I can see a day when the iTunes Store no longer sells downloads, but we’re not there yet. Even though sales of music in the iTunes Store are dropping, I said in my article, “I don’t think this will happen in two years; maybe five, more likely ten.”

Of course, even if Apple were planning this, they wouldn’t admit to it now…
