Apple to Extend iTunes Song Previews to 90 Seconds

We're just in, great news for our artists! Apple has informed music labels that it's preparing to extend the duration of songs previews in iTunes to 90 seconds that are at least 2 minutes and 30 seconds long. Shorter ones will continue the 30-seconds samples.

Actually, there's no official word if this is for the entire iTunes world wide, but at least for USA it is coming soon, according to the report over Symphonic Distribution. There was some reports from CNET just two days before Apple's media event on September 1st indicating that iTunes song previews would extend to 30 seconds happening in the event, but it failed to materialize in the event as the change had been held up by licensing issues, which seems now everything is well!
