I don't know how much water the case will have, it seems that competitors are pressuring for the investigation when Amazon and Walmart both have about 12% of the market each. iTunes does not really appear to fit the definition of a monopoly as seen in the Encyclopedia of Business and Finance, http://www.enotes.com/business-finance-encyclopedia/monopoly Seems more of the other big boys crying against capitalism of digital distribution and wanting some handouts without earning them. from my point of view the "record labels" only use Apple grudgingly because Apple sells songs and the labels have a love/hate relationship with Apple because of iTunes success.
