Class Action Law Suit Could Cost Apple $1 Billion

Today a long lasting class action law suit will actually start in court. Apple is being accused of abusing their market position during the iPod dominance when it comes to blocking competing devices and services as Apple made sure iTunes music could only be played on the iPod.

The group of individuals and resellers that are suing Apple, wanted to receive $350 million in compensation as they argue that by locking the iTunes music, the prices of the iPod was inflated. Apple chose not to settle, if they lose in court the amount the company has to pay will increase to over $1 billion.
