Abstract

-Commerce Times and Tech News World article Apple Accused of Secretly Snuffing Non-iTunes Music Purchases on December 4.

Apple's tight bond between its iTunes store and the iPod made it difficult, if not almost impossible, to obtain music from other sources, explained Joseph P. Bauer, a law professor at Notre Dame University.

"Apple is going to have a difficult time arguing that that is not anticompetitive," he told the E-Commerce Times.

"Apple has been a bad actor on a number of antitrust fronts," Bauer said. "Steve Jobs, may he rest in peace, had a bit of disdain for the antitrust laws, and this may be another example of that."
