US inquiry into music downloading
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4769878.stm

The US Department of Justice is investigating allegations of price fixing by top music labels on their charges for digital downloading.
The inquiry mirrors an ongoing probe by New York attorney general Eliot Spitzer into what the industry charges firms such as Apple to sell music online.

Labels have been at loggerheads with Apple over what it charges for tracks sold through its iTunes online service.

None of the world's four largest music labels have commented on the inquiry.

Ya gotta love Spitzer...
