DOJ Shows Up Late Again; Follows Spitzer's Lead In Online Music Price Fixing
from the a-bit-slow-on-the-ball dept
Late last year, we pointed out how the head of some record labels, in pushing Apple to change its pricing policy, appeared to be very publicly trying to fix prices -- something the industry had gotten into trouble for multiple times in the past. It took a few months for NY Attorney General Eliot Spitzer to start up an investigation, and as with more than a few Spitzer probes, he showed himself to be a bit ahead of the Department of Justice -- who you would think should be the one investigating all of this. The Justice Department has now begun its own investigation, which is apparently essentially the same as Spitzer's.
