DOJ says Apple spearheaded e-book price-fixing scheme

Apple denies allegations

The Department of Justice (DOJ) says there’s one organization to blame for spearheading the e-book price-fixing scheme—Apple Inc.

The case dates back a little more than a year, when the DOJ filed suits against Apple and five publishers—MacMillan, Penguin Group, Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster—for conspiring to fix e-book prices.
