Apple’s iTunes store, only with Disney movies?

Reports claim that Apple has been unable to agree terms with studios other than those in the Disney empire: Miramax, Touchstone, Walt Disney Pictures and, of course, Pixar.

Apple Chairman Steve Jobs became Disney’s largest individual shareholder after selling his company, Pixar, to Disney.

Other movie studios reportedly want more flexibility. Reports speculate that they are unhappy with the company’s fixed-price structure, nor with its insistence that movies come out the same day they are released on DVD, according to the Washington Times.

Some studios even believe that Windows Media software offers better copy protection than Apple FairPlay, and studios want digital rights management to cover their articles.

The only exception appears to be Lion’s Gate Entertainment, which has agreed to make movies available through the service, which may or may not be announced next week.
