At Friday’s hearings into IT price gouging in Australia, Apple’s local MD, Tony King, tried to absolve the gadget giant of responsibility for local iTunes mark-ups by throwing the blame directly at record companies. As a result, those record companies are about to be given an opportunity to explain themselves before the Committee at yet another hearing.
iTNews reports that the Inquiry will be called back to hear testimony from international record labels that were thrown under the proverbial bus by Apple on Friday.
There’s no work yet on when the Committee will hear from offending record labels, only that Governmental gadget crusader, Ed Husic, is on the case. [iTNews]
