Thank God for Elliot Spitzer

As I noted before, Steve Jobs' stubborn refusal to play ball put a cramp in major music labels' shortsighted attempts to jack up online pricing. Now, Elliot Spitzer (who's running for Governor of New York this year) appears to have called the labels on their anticompetitive behavior.

See the story on CNet. This has happened before. In 2000, 28 states went after the labels for working together to prop up CD prices.
