Apple hit with another class action

iTunes gains another enemy

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Apple is facing another class action suit, this one from a man in Florida who alleges Apple is trying to create a monopoly in digital music by illegally tying iPods to its iTunes music service.

The case is brought on behalf of all Florida residents who have bought an iPod or music from iTunes. The case will now be heard by a California court, which is already hearing a similar complaint.

Frederick Black is asking for $15,000 in damages and costs, according to AppleInsider.

Apple is already facing investigation by the European Union, which in April issued a Statement of Objections to Apple and four music labels.

Competition regulators in Norway have given Apple until 1 March to come up with a solution to make its DRM technology legal under Norwegian law.
