FEATURE: Justice Department Sues Apple Over E-Books

 

This week, the U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Apple and several publishers over the companies' E-Book pricing arrangement. Apple currently takes 30 percent from e-book sales on Apple devices--and because of its deal with publishers, competitors like Amazon can't price e-books below specified prices. CEI released a statement calling the suit a mistake. Read the statement here. Also, see Wayne Crews' Forbes column on the issue: "Why is Apple Getting Cored in Washington?"
