U.S. Judge Rules Big Music Misled Federal Investigators

24 Apr ’06

From the WSJ: “A U.S. District Court judge has found that Vivendi Universal SA’s Universal Music Group and EMI Group PLC, deliberately misled federal investigators by obscuring the degree to which they sought — and gained — information about their competitors’ pricing agreements with online music services.” The proceeding appears to be part of the Justice Department’s investigation into price fixing by BigMusic. Is it just me, or is “Big Music” starting to carry the PR appeal of “Big Tobacco”?
