What even is an antitrust lawsuit? I have no idea. Let me clarify for myself, sorry. Ok, Wikipedia says: "Competition law is known as antitrust law in the United States and anti-monopoly law in China and Russia. In previous years it has been known as trade practices law in the United Kingdom and Australia." Fine, I get it now. Antitrust doesn't make sense.

The only thing that's antitrust in a more literal sense of the word is Apple itself. Why? Because you can't trust it. And, well, it certainly seems that they were deleting music off early iPods that had been downloaded from services that were competing with iTunes at the time – namely, RealPlayer. They won the lawsuit cause these actions didn't hurt consumers. But that's not… the point of… antitrust, is it? It's to protect other businesses, or am I just fucking stupid?

An anonymous Apple spokesperson said this:

We created iPod and iTunes to give our customers the world's best way to listen to music. Every time we've updated those products — and every Apple product over the years — we've done it to make the user experience even better.

What better way than eliminating any music that doesn't fit Apple's utopian dream – if the peg don't fit the apple-shaped hole, bin it. It's always been the same with Apple. I wonder how this huge, ubiquitous, pervasive, consumer-consuming giant of a company ever won the lawsuit, it's a miracle. Praise be to Apple.
