Default And Now Some News on the Legal Front...

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.9to5mac.com/57234/apple-ceo-steve-jobs-called-to-answer-questions-in-itunes-anti-trust-suit/' target='_blank'>http://www.9to5mac.com/57234/apple-...nti-trust-suit/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Bloomberg reports that Steve Jobs will have to testify in an anti-trust suite which alleges that Apple operated a music-downloading monopoly."</em></p><p><img height="454" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1269392385.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="600" /></p><p>According to the story, this involves&nbsp;<em>"Apple's blockage of RealNetwork's Harmony software which briefly allowed users to use RealNetworks' music in iTunes and on iPods. A few days after Harmony was released, Apple updated its own software to block Harmony from working in Apple's Music ecosystem." </em>Seems like this would go nowhere but I can understand Job's getting a subpoena to testify if he had specific information related to the case. In other legal news, Apple is <a href="http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/news/comments/apple-sues-amazon-over-app-store-trademark/" target="_blank">suing Amazon.com</a> over the use of the term "App Store," and Microsoft is protesting the awarding of the trademark. It does seem like a generic term to me, unless of course you put the Apple in front of it. What are your thoughts?</p>
