Apple Is Accused of Deleting Rivals’ Music from iPods

A huge antitrust class-action lawsuit against the Californian electronics company is currently heard in court. The tech giant is accused of intentionally deleting music not purchased from iTunes from users’ iPods a few years ago. A billion-dollar antitrust suit against the company for abuse of its iTunes Music Store dominance is developing in the US District Court in Oakland, California. The attorneys representing the plaintiffs claim that Apple scanned for music not purchased from iTunes and, if such was found, forced a factory reset of the iPod.

Indeed, it turned out that the users who tried to sync and update an iPod with music from the Apple rivals, including Amazon or 7Digital, faced a message about the error with their iPod. The text of the message was saying that that error could only be solved by a factory restore via iTunes. The latter completely wiped the iPod. Music bought from iTunes was restored on the iPod, but music from rival services wouldn’t. The tech giant for some reason decided to not disclose the problem to the users.

In respond, Apple security director argued that the music from the rival services was deleted for security reasons. The company also claimed that hackers including Jon Lech Johansen (aka “DVD Jon”) and software such as the digital rights management removal tool Requiem had made the company extremely paranoid. Even Steve Jobs wrote at the time that someone was “breaking into their house”.

Apple claimed that between 2007 and 2009, their system was “totally hacked”, and the company had to delete music for security reasons. Finally, Apple said it didn’t need to give iPod users too much information in order to not confuse them. No more comments on the issue were received from the tech giant thus far.

ChaosReigns avatarGood job! This story was announced EVERYWHERE December 4th and it only took you 12 days instead of a full 2 weeks to list it as "Latest Articles"....how exactly did you get the 'super admin' designation? I'm guessing you eagerly swallow rather than spit.

ChaosReigns avatar@3 you sound like you have lots of experience licking up leaking anal residue. Apparently not very bright either considering you think two week old news is still news.

Beolab1700 avatarAll I can say to this is I'm thankful for Linux and my drag and drop walkman. Only fools use Window’s and the mentally challenged only use Apple.

YoGi avatariPods are good, and so are most quality mp3 players.
I had the privilage of NOT using iTunes (worst software ever) but used Foobar . Now i've moved onto Zune, and don't think will ever need to change

@ChaosReigns , to start with, THIS is NOT a news website. having news that's hitting the world's newspapers is NOT our priority.
The article was rightfully put in the correct section: Recent Headlines Involving File Sharing > Current Events
If 12 days is OLD for you, then events that happened last year are to be considered forever ?

fusseltier avatarwhat do you expect from apple? surely nothing fair, only dominance and contempt.

ZerlindaX avatarIt's all about getting Apple's $$$ customers to Itunes to spend
money on protective Mp3's music and movies. Apple is all about
money and selling $4,000 laptops. Try playing the latest 3D
games. I be damn if I'm gonna paid $800,00 for a Iphone that
you can't even upgrade the memory or change your own
battery without breaking the phone.

Can't really blame Apple, I'll probably do the same thing and
make all the money I could since most people are stupid
enough to paid any price for a Apple's logo.
