Apple proposes new terms in e-books battle | CNET News

Apple proposes new terms in e-books battle | CNET News | Tech Updates | Scoop.it

Hours after the Department of Justice and 33 U.S. states proposed a set of remedies for Apple following its July loss in the e-books price-fixing case, the company came back with its own set of terms and called the government's proposals vague, overreaching, and unwarranted.

 

In a brief filed Friday, the company called the government's proposed measures a "draconian and punitive intrusion into Apple's business, wildly out of proportion to any adjudicated wrongdoing or potential harm."

 

Apple maintained that it did not violate antitrust laws. It added that an earlier pact publishers struck to settle the government's allegations against them has already rooted out the behavior that the court found to be anticompetitive, and can't recur again.

 

But if the court does issue an injunction, Apple said, it should place "reasonable limitations on Apple's ability to share information," prohibit agreements with publishers from having "most favored nation" pricing pacts that give Apple the best price, and "reasonable antitrust training obligations for Apple, lasting a reasonable term."

 

Earlier Friday, the Department of Justice proposed a remedy that would require Apple to terminate its existing agreements with five major book publishers, staff a court-appointed monitor to keep an eye on internal antitrust compliance policies, and allow competing companies like Amazon to link to purchasable content within their e-book apps.
