Windows Not the Only One With Antitrust Problems

The European Union is so tough on monopolies, it'd probably like to ban the board game, if it could.

Now, Apple is feeling the EU's fury as iTunes is being looked into for limiting competition. At issue is the fact that an English music lover can download songs only in England.

But in Europe, people travel a lot; English soccer hooligans go to Germany for strong beer and high-quality fist fights, and the Germans go to the French Alps to watch their riders lose in the Tour de France.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity for Microsoft to sell a few Zunes!
