DOJ sues Apple, publishers on e-book pricing | The Raw Story | Human Writes | Scoop.it

Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster reached a settlement but the case will proceed against Apple and the other two — Macmillan and Penguin Group — “for conspiring to end e-book retailers’ freedom to compete on price,” the Justice Department said.
