Legal Well, this was as inevitable as the tides rolling in. The New York Times is reporting that the US Department of Justice is investigating Apple's tactics in the digital music market. The antitrust probe is still in an early phase, and is said to focus on "the dynamics of selling music online".

Investigated for helping competition?

This seems a little odd. In my eyes Apple have helped the online music business by trying to prevent Amazon having a monopoly on certain tracks. By ensuring competition surely the consumer wins. This is of course ignoring the fact that Apple would probably like to lock up the whole market for themselves but that is another issue.
