Default USA vs Apple - DOJ files Lawsuit Against the Mega Fruit

The Problem:


US files suit against Apple, publishers over e-book price-fixing

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) filed an antitrust lawsuit against Apple and five publishers Wednesday, alleging e-book prices were artificially hiked by $2 to $3 and as much as $5 -- costing consumers tens of millions.


Publishers Simon & Schuster, Hachette and News Corp.'s HarperCollins have agreed to settle the suit, avoiding a costly legal battle. But Apple, Macmillan, and Penguin Group are denying price collusion and are prepared to fight the charges of “conspiring to limit pricing competition.” ...


"To effectuate their conspiracy, the publisher defendants teamed up with defendant Apple, which shared the same goal of restraining retail price competition in the sale of e-books." ...


The lawsuit includes a q
uote from the late Steve Jobs discussing the company's pricing strategy.

"We'll go to [an] agency model, where you set the price, and we get our 30 percent, and yes, the customer pays a little more, but that's what you want anyway,"
the quote says. ...

Great solution! They ought to buy the entire Federal Government, because I'm sure they could do a better job of running the entire thing and would have sense enough to fire all those who turn a blind eye to the will of the people. Our representatives do not represent us.
