Karmaic Retribution?

6 Jan

Although Apple was in the news this week for suing some rumor websites in advance of next week's MacWorld, Apple is also in the news because they are being sued:

A user of Apple's iTunes music service is suing the firm saying it is unfair he can only use an iPod to play songs.

He says Apple is breaking anti-competition laws in refusing to let other music players work with the site.

This has to be one of the dumber law suits I've seen in the last year. The iTunes music store is not the reason people by iPods. Therefore, the fact that the iPod only works with the iTunes music store is irrelevant. The iPod has a natural monopoly because it is "cool", which isn't illegal.
