Court okays Steve Jobs deposition in iTunes case

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "It seems like forever ago, but it really wasn’t until April 2009 that Apple began offering iTunes downloads free from the shackles of DRM. Prior to that, downloaded songs were only playable on iPods, effectively tying consumers who used iTunes for music downloads to Apple hardware.

Antitrust lawsuits ensued, and while some claims were dropped, the rest were consolidated and rage on. Now, US Magistrate Judge Howard R. Lloyd has given the the prosecution the go-ahead to conduct a limited deposition of Apple CEO Steve Jobs about his role in refusing to license FairPlay to RealNetworks."
