Amazon vs Apple, HarperCollins, Hachette Book Group, Penguin, Random House, Simon & Schuster.

Oakland Courthouse

Apple, threatened by Amazon’s Kindle e-book reader, agreed with the publishers News Corp’s HarperCollins Publishers unit and four other major publishers to announce a so-called agency model according to the lawsuit , filed by Hagens Berman law firm in federal court in Oakland, California.

They are accused for conspiracy to raise e-book prices, which might be an anticompetitive conduct, likely in tens of millions of dollars.

Not too bad – at least for the law firm.
