Man sues Apple after being forced to buy iPod

Looks like a disgrunteled iTunes customer is suing Apple.

According to Thomas Slattery, “Apple has unlawfully bundled, tied, and/or leveraged its monopoly in the market for the sale of legal online digital music recordings to thwart competition in the separate market for portable hard drive digital music players, and vice-versa.”

He claims that since iTunes requires all music downloaded from it’s store to played on the iPod, a computer, or a home stereo system, that they have formed a monopoly and in turned “forced” him to purchase an iPod if we wishes to make use of the music he has payed for and downloaded.

The claim states he filed for unspecified damages for being “forced” to purchase an iPod.
