Antitrust Inquiry for Apple?

Numerous reports on a potential FTC inquiry over Apple's policies on media subscriptions sold through its AppStore and billed through iTunes: see here for example.

What law is being violated here?

I have been waiting for Apple and publishers to get their collective act together and start offering some decent content, at a reasonable price, that I can access on my phone (preferred for now) or my iPad (birthday present coming up).

The complaint seems to be that Apple's 30% take is too large.

I ask again: What law is being broken here?

Apple also offers online services with MobileMe (formerly .Mac) that bundles personal web pages, email, Groups, iDisk, backup, iSync, and Learning Center online tutorials. MobileMe is a subscription-based internet suite that capitalizes on the ability to store personal data on an online server and thereby keep all web-connected devices in sync
