    They're in court again, this time over their practices with DRM and music via iTunes.

    Apple Antitrust Lawsuit On iTunes and iPod - Business Insider

    The emails from Jobs are going to be extremely detrimental to their case.

    Apple deleted users' non-iTunes music and didn't tell them about it

    We're not talking about illegally downloaded songs, but songs that were legitimately purchased from sources other than iTunes.

    Keeping the prices high, and deleting anything purchased from a competitor is what's going to be their downfall. And rightfully so.

    Sounds like a delay to the inevitable rather than a victory for Apple.

    I'm not so sure. Without a valid plaintiff, the entire reason for a class action suit goes out the window. The judge could toss it on purely technical grounds.

    Right -- so they'll just find a plaintiff who owned the relevant iPod and refile.
