Apple Sued for iPod Monopoly, Defective iBooks

It seems that the stock scandal wasn't enough for Apple; the Associated Press is reporting that the company is facing several lawsuits. One of them, filed July 21, alleges that Apple is monopolizing the digital music market with the iPod and iTunes. Media purchased on iTunes is meant to be played exclusively on iPod hardware while other DRM media is not easily playable on iPods. On December 20, Apple's motion to dismiss the case was denied by the courts. Another lawsuit, filed on Nov. 7, claims a high failure rate of the logic board in the iBook G4. Not wanting to be left out, PhatRat Technology accuses Apple of patent infringement for its iPod-Nike product.
