A nearly-decade-old class action lawsuit against Apple is finally about to go to court, and the star witness for the plaintiffs will be the man synonymous with the company, Apple's late founder and CEO Steve Jobs.
The plaintiffs accuse Apple of using unfair business practices to establish a monopoly in digital music back in the mid-2000s.
Basically, they claim if an iPod owner bought digital music from anywhere other than iTunes, Apple sabotaged their ability to play that music on their device, deliberately stifling competition.
