Apple Aggressively Fighting E-Books Antitrust Case

Unlike the five publishers, all of which have settled the case, filed in April 2012, Apple is aggressively disputing the government’s assertions that Apple and the publishers wanted to force Amazon, which controlled 90 percent of the e-book market before Apple entered it, to raise its prices, according to court papers. A trial is scheduled to begin June 3 in Federal District Court in New York.
