I decided to refund everybody's $40, with my deepest apologies. With 5000 musicians signed up, that meant I was refunding $200,000.
Since we couldn't promise anything, I couldn't charge money in good conscience.
I removed all mention of iTunes from my site.
I removed the $40 cost to make it free.
I changed the language to say we can't promise anything.
I emailed everyone to let them know what had happened.
I decided to make it a free service from that point on.
The next day, we got our signed contract back from Apple, along with upload instructions."
