Apple Trial: B&N's Horner Touts Agency Model

Apple Trial: B&N's Horner Touts Agency Model | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Nook Media v-p of digital content Theresa Horner took the stand at the Apple e-book price fixing trial and the government and Apple clashed over questions about the profitability—or lack of it—in the e-book market of 2009-2010.
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

But Judge Cote said, “this is not a trial about the profitability of the e-book business,” and eventually ruled against Apple, forcing a focus on a narrower concept—the profitability of e-book bestsellers in 2010—but Apple had made its point. Apple, Snyder said, made an independent business decision to “adopt a rational business model, not create a model simply to conspire to raise prices,” when it entered the e-book marketplace. “Apple was intent on entering a market in a legal and profitable manner,” he said, “and other smart and sophisticated people came to the same decisions as Apple did.”
