Apple says DOJ’s e-book penalties put it at a disadvantage

Software giant claims Justice Department favors Amazon in it penalties

It’s the second time the Department of Justice (DOJ) has taken a stab at penalizing Apple Inc. for its e-book misdeeds, but the software giant is still crying foul.

After the DOJ won an antitrust lawsuit against Apple over its e-book sales in July, the agency filed a reform proposal that included a 10-year injunction, an internal antitrust monitor to oversee Apple’s e-book sales practices and a requirement allowing other e-book retailers, such as Amazon, to link to their e-book stores from iOS apps.
