Ubuntu One Music Store Links

Registered by John Lenton on 2010-05-03

Open the music store from a web link -- how can this be done? How do we make it work in all browsers? How do we handle someone on a non-Ubuntu platform clicking the link? If you have experience of custom URL schemes, JavaScript, or using iTunes music store links, please come along to the UDS session.
