Apple’s popular iTunes Store has been around since 2003 as a premier way to purchase media. Today, Patently Apple reported that the company was granted a “major patent” for the iTunes Store that relates to its user interface for reviewing, browsing, previewing, purchasing, or distributing media items in a client-server environment. Apple was issued a similar patent in August 2010 that involves media presentation in a client-server environment.

Could this arm Apple in its fight against App Stores on other platforms like Amazon’s App Store and Google’s Android Market?
