EU Launches Antitrust Probe Into ITunes

EU Launches Antitrust Probe Into ITunes

The European Commission confirmed Tuesday it had opened an antitrust probe into Apple's iTunes and the way it sells music online in coordination with major music companies.
The commission said consumers were "restricted in their choice of where to buy music," and what music is available and at what price due to the agreements iTunes has with the record labels, which EU regulators said could violate EU competition rules.
Apple has two months to answer questions issued in a letter sent to the company over the EU antitrust concerns, the commission said.
