    The UK’s Telegraph newspaper reports today that the UK will not be getting iTunes in iCloud until at least Q1 of 2012. According to a spokesman for the Performing Rights Society (PRS), negotiations with Apple to secure rights for composers, songwriters and music publishers in the UK had only just started.

    The Telegraph also spoke to a music executive at a major record label, who asked to remain anonymous, who concurred with the PRS spokesman’s statement that talks between the interested parties have only just begun, adding that “no one expects to see the cloud music service live on this side of the pond until 2012.â€
