Jury finds for Apple in iPod class-action suit

Apple has won the lawsuit brought against it by disgruntled iPod owners. The group alleged that the company behaved in an anti-competitive manner by keeping competing devices from using their music ecosystem. The jury found that Apple did not act improperly.

According to Reuters:

Apple Inc won an antitrust trial on Tuesday when a U.S. jury decided the company did not act improperly when it restricted music purchases for iPod users to Apple's iTunes digital store.

Apple had argued that they were under no obligation to make sure that their software and updates were compatible with competing products. The trial had recently restarted, and included emails and a video deposition from the late Steve Jobs.
