It was not your typical holiday greeting that Attorney General Elliot Spitzer was sending this week to some companies. According to the New York Times here, Spitzer sent subpoenas to several major record companies. For example, one entity reports here that:
"On December 20, 2005, the Attorney General of the State of New York served Warner Music Group Corp. (the 'Company') with a request for information in the form of a subpoena duces tecum and subpoena ad testificandum in connection with an industry-wide investigation as to whether the practices of industry participants concerning the pricing of digital music downloads violate Section 1 of the Sherman Act, New York State General Business Law §§ 340 et seq., New York Executive Law §63(12), and related statutes. The Company intends to cooperate fully with the Attorney General’s inquiry."
And Spitzer was also the subject of an article here.
