Apple has denied a recent Music Week story that claimed the company has entered a partnership to provide live-event streaming over the internet to bands.

Music Week claimed Apple had teamed-up with See Tickets and a UK marketing firm called Creative Tank to offer the service. The report said acts would be able to make live shows available to their fans on a pay-per-view basis.

But Music Week was wrong, an Apple representative told Macworld last night, "there is no partnership," they explained.
