Federal officials accuse Apple of ebook price-fixing conspiracy
The U.S. Department of Justice has filed an antitrust suit  against Apple, along with fellow publishers Holtzbrinck Publishers (MacMillan) and The Penguin Publishing Co. Ltd. (Penguin Group), accusing the companies of conspiring to raise the prices of ebooks. The lawsuits follow months of negotiations between the publishers, the DoJ, and state governments in an attempt to agree on a settlement. Apple has not publicly responded to the suit; however, MacMillan CEO John Sargent sent a letter to publishers and agent explaining that the company did not settle because it is “hard to settle a lawsuit when you know you have done no wrong.” (photo by Phil Photostream) source
