In the free market, Apple’s progress is unobstructed by a certain monopoly power.

Despite of the promise of the iTunes killer over the years from the pc pundits, large music labels, small startups, and even Microsoft, iTunes wins over the competition.

iTunes competitors that flopped include:
Sony Duet, Sony Connect, Universal Music Group Pressplay, eMusic, Napster, Rhapsody, MusicNet, Microsoft PlaysForSure, Microsoft’s various partners which Microsoft later abandoned, and MSN Music.

Over the course of 7 years, the growth of iTunes is unimpeded by the competition:
