Marketplace for Monday, April 16, 2012

The Supreme Court heard arguments today on whether pharmaceutical companies have to pay overtime to their sales reps -- and it could affect how overtime works for everyone. OpenTable, the online restaurant reservation service, is getting some new competition from The Food Network. Walmart has officially entered the movie streaming business. Imagine drinking a juice and then eating the juice box -- edible packaging could soon be a reality. And Los Angeles held its CicLAvia event this weekend, bringing more than 100,000 people out on bikes and showing the value in changing how people see a city.
