Rocker Kid Rock is refusing to partner iTunes because he thinks they are unfair to musicians, who are not paid enough for the downloads.

He said the model is based on "an old system, where iTunes takes the money, the record company takes the money, and they don't give it to the artistes," reports.

He went on to say: "The Internet was an opportunity for everyone to be treated fairly, for the consumer to get a fair price, for the artiste to be paid fairly, for the record companies to make some money. But they (Apple) stuck to the old system.

"I will be on iTunes eventually because I can't avoid it, but I like to always stick to my guns and prove a point and do something original and because I believe in it."
