Justice Department Seeks Oversight of Apple's iTunes Store



Justice Department Seeks Oversight of Apple's iTunes Store
Punishment Would Include Music, Movies and TV Content Sold on iTunes

WSJ, Updated August 2, 2013, 7:13 p.m. ET

By CHAD BRAY, IAN SHERR and JEFFREY A. TRACHTENBERG


After winning last month an e-books antitrust suit against Apple, the Justice Department on Friday asked a federal judge to limit Apple's influence in the publishing market and give the government oversight of the iTunes Store and App Store.

The government proposals, if accepted, could give music, television-show and content owners more leverage in negotiations with a company that has been an aggressive bargainer in opening up traditional media to digital distribution.

Apple is currently negotiating with owners of video programming about potential new devices and services for the living room. After negotiating with record labels, it recently announced a new music streaming service, iTunes Radio.

The government seeks to prohibit Apple from reaching agreements with media companies that increase the prices at which Apple's rivals sell e-books, music, TV shows or movies.

Apple objected strongly to the proposals, calling them a "draconian and punitive intrusion into Apple's business, wildly out of proportion to any adjudicated wrongdoing or potential harm," in a court filing Friday----

Well, what do you know? Pretty much a turn around, I think.

Quite probably... But then given that the ITC ban on iStuff (albeit older ones) was vetoed a couple of days ago, they might just want to learn a bit of give and take otherwise the stamping their feet like a child and shouting "it's not fair" probably won't do them any favours in the long term.

I wonder if they had a heads up on this, and is in part at least, if not totally the reason they are being more accessible to Washington, DC and lobbyists, recently.

We have heard a lot of wailing about the iTunes store, the oversight, the rules, the rigidity, etc., and I can see those people that complained a lot utilizing the FED Oversight to their advantage, kind of like kids on the playground complaining to a supervising teacher.

"Dear Big Fed, little Apple isn't playing nice with us! We never get to kick the ball."
