I’m willing to bet that your iTunes library is a mess. You ripped CDs from your collection and you’ve got a lot songs that are labeled: “Track 3” from “Unknown Artist.” And I don’t even want to get into cover art. Today is the day to make a stand.

The bond money, which amounted to only $2.6 million in the Galaxy Tab 10.1 case, would be used to compensate Samsung should Apple ultimately lose the case when it goes to full trial.
