∞ Pandora says federal grand jury probing Apple, Android apps

Music service Pandora disclosed that it has been served with a subpoena to produce documents for a federal grand jury looking into Apple and Android apps.

Pandora said it was informed it was not the target of the investigations, according to Marketwatch.

“We believe that similar subpoenas were issued on an industry-wide basis to the publishers of numerous other smartphone applications,” said Pandora.
