Submission + - Apple Facing New Anti-trust Investigation (nytimes.com)

mantis2009 writes: After recent complaints of anti-competitive behavior, the New York Times reports that the US Department of Justice has opened an inquiry into Apple's business practices for selling music. Investigators have specifically asked whether Apple colluded with record labels to thwart Amazon.com's music download store, according to the ever-present anonymous "people briefed on the situation." Allegedly, Apple threatened to retaliate if any music label participated in Amazon's "MP3 Daily Deal" promotion, which offered early access to some MP3 tracks. Apple refused to comment on the story, so no word on whether Bill Gates came up with the anti-competitive idea or if Steve Jobs thought of it all by himself.
