Apple rejects DOJ charge of e-book price collusion

Company claims the accusation it was involved in price-fixing is untrue

Apple is vehemently denying that it colluded with other publishers over the price of e-books, as the Department of Justice (DOJ) claims. The DOJ filed suit against Apple and five other publishers on Wednesday, saying the companies partook in an "illegal conspiracy" to fix the prices of e-books--a violation of antitrust laws.

"The DOJ's accusation of collusion against Apple is simply not true," Apple said in a statement, which it first issued to online publication All Things D yesterday.
