U.S., States Propose Shorter E-Book Apple Injunction

The U.S. government offered to cut in half the length of a proposed injunction to punish Apple Inc for conspiring with five major publishers to raise e-book prices. In a court filing, the U.S. Department of Justice and 33 U.S. states and territories recommended reducing the injunction's length to five years from 10, with a chance to seek a "limited number" of one-year extensions if events warrant.
