* The death of sale pricing?

Personal Stuff/Random News
The Supreme Court's got a tough case coming up: whether or not a company can force stores to keep items at a certain price.

Watch this one close - if the nine boobs in black rule the wrong way, you may never see items on sale pricing again.

A fundamental rule of our free-market system is at stake in Leegin v. PSKS: the rule that manufacturers may not prevent retail discounting by colluding with dealers to fix the prices at which their products are sold at retail. The question presented is whether such minimum resale price maintenance (?RPM?) agreements should continue to be per se illegal or, rather, should be evaluated under a very lenient standard, which in antitrust parlance is called the ?rule of reason.?
