Apple Promises Uniform Pricing in EU, Ending Antitrust Investigation

The European Union is dropping its antitrust investigation against Apple as Apple has announced similar pricing for music tracks in all EU countries.  U.K. customers paid approximately 10% more for tracks than did continental subscribers.  Left in place are restrictions on what music can be sold in what countries.  One interesting note that comes out of this investigation is that Apple's country by country arrangements for pricing had nothing to do with record company agreements.  A little margin-padding, perhaps?
