Electronic Books-Antitrust Lawsuit

FILE - In a Friday, June 7, 2013 file photo, a sign displays the Apple logo outside of the company's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. A federal judge ruled Wednesday, July 10, 2013 that Apple Inc. broke antitrust laws and conspired with publishers to raise electronic book prices, citing "compelling evidence" from the words of the late Steve Jobs. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote said Apple knew that no publisher could risk acting alone to try to eliminate Amazon.com's $9.99 price for the most popular e-books so it "created a mechanism and environment that enabled them to act together in a matter of weeks to eliminate all retail price competition for their e-books."Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr said the Cupertino, California-based company planned to appeal.
