Avid buys Sibelius for $23 million
By Macworld staff

Avid Technology has acquired London-based company Sibelius Software in a $23 million deal.

Sibelius makes music notation software that is widely used by musicians for movies and songs and by scho.
Avid Technology now owns Digidesign (ahem...ProTools), M-Audio (midi controllers and other music hardware/software), and now Sibelius (a top notation program). I fear companies that become too monopolistic.
