Ebook: U.S. Apple and producing process for combining prices

Hy everyone :)

The U.S. Justice Department decided to sue Apple and several major producing books for the price match to rival Amazon.

The investigation had begun in August, and now the Justice Department concluded that there was deliberate inflation in the prices of ebooks.

The case is in court in New York, where Departamente of Justice indicates that Apple, Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin and Simon & Schuster, combined prices of eBooks to counter competitors offering various discounts, getting up , sell books for $ 9.99.

However, the Justice Department says it has reached agreement with three producing, Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster, but the terms of the agreement were not disclosed, unlike Apple and other companies, that will advance the process in court .

But this may not be the only process on pricing where Apple is involved. The European Union is also investigating since December. From the beginning there was the same pricing, since three of the producers agreed, Apple will also have to face this process in the European Union.
