Apple made the same offer to UVM. It is not a wonderful deal: iTunes
is already free, and songs are already 99¢. The contract would've let
UVM use the iTunes logo, and put the software in our download site.
But there were requirements for tracking use and so on that would've
been a burden on us. All in all, it was not advantageous to UVM.
It's good for people to be using iTunes or Napster 2.0 rather than the
scummy alternatives, and CIT did publish a Web page, which doubled as a
move-in handout, promoting ways to get free and cheap music.
