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".

But it still persists on videos.


Because the movie and TV industries haven't learned the hard lesson the music industry has grudgingly, finally, learned. Apple cannot sell videos without DRM if the content producers do not allow it. If you need proof of the video industry's love of DRM, just look at what they did to Blu-ray and DVDs before that. If Apple removed the DRM from their videos, they'd be squashed by big media before you could blink.
