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.

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