Submission + - Swiss RIAA under formal investigation ( 1

cheros writes: The Swiss paper Blick reports that the IFPI, the Swiss equivalent of the RIAA is now under formal investigation for market rigging and building an illegal monopoly (Google translation).

A pre-investigation seems to have concluded that there is enough evidence to warrant a formal investigation into market rigging and forcing members not to import music handled by another member (i.e. anti-competition).

If found guilty, fines could amount to 10% of their turnover for the last 3 years..
