iTunes Holdout

Linkin Park, along with other Warner Brother Music group artists like Green Day, had an infamous iTunes holdout refusing to sell their content on the iTunes music store. Despite Apple trying to persuade the label to go digital, they had refused. The label finally gave in about a year ago, being one of the last influential artists to join the iTunes music store. The process began with the band offering music videos, then their 3 top albums. They now are in close relations with iTunes and have been featured artists on the homepage on several occasions.[3]
