ComputerWeekly is reporting that Apple's iTunes store has been blocked in China. The iTunes store has allegedly been blocked due to Tibet protest songs available on the music store.

The album that caused iTunes to be blocked in China is titled "Songs for Tibet" and is a compilation produced by the Art of Peace foundation and offered as a free download to Olympic athletes.

Reports say that more than 40 athletes downloaded the album, which included songs by Sting, Rush, Underworld, and Alanis Morrissette. No iTunes customers in China can download songs from the iTunes website; Apple blames ISPs in China for blocking its site.
