Apple's E-Book Antitrust Trial Set to Start

Government lawyers are set to face off against Apple in a Manhattan courtroom, trying to prove that the company conspired with publishers to raise prices in the e-book market. But the evidence in the case will not just determine whether Apple has violated antitrust laws. It will also tell a broader story of how the introduction of e-books created upheaval in the publishing industry — with guest appearances by major players like Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Steven P. Jobs, Apple’s former chief executive.
