Steve Jobs has been ordered to appear in court in order to answer questions about the iTunes antitrust case. Jobs has been shrouded in rumors in recent weeks regarding his health, so some have suggested that perhaps this court order means that he is in better health than some of the rumors have suggested. The antitrust case was first filed in 2005. It alleged that Apple and their iTunes store for unlocked iphone 4 and ipad had a complete monopoly over online music sales. While this may have been true at the time, a number of other services have popped up as the mobile market has continued to expand and other manufacturers launch their own music applications.
The antitrust case states that changes that Apple made to iTunes in 2004 prevented other companies from being played on devices that were released by Apple. The court stated that Jobs had first hand knowledge of their strategies and issues, and that was the reason why he has been called to appear.
As of right now, Jobs is currently on medical leave from the company, and has not stated when he expects to return. He took a leave of absence in 2009 as well, but this one differs because Jobs is remaining the acting CEO, even while he is on medical leave and will still be involved in larger, overarching strategic decisions that have been placed.
It will be interesting to see what kind of quotes from his testimony are released, if any. Jobs was not expected to be summoned to the court because of his medical problems. This could suggest that perhaps his health is better than some have speculated, but Jobs himself has not released any direct statements regarding the state of his health and has only asked that the media attempt to respect his privacy.
