NY Judge Rules Apple Must Modify E-Book Contracts to Prevent Price Fixing

Friday, September 06, 2013 - 11:09 AM

Tech giant Apple will have to modify contracts with publishers to prevent price fixing for electronic books as a result of a ruling by a federal judge in New York Friday.

In July, Judge Denis Cote found that Apple had colluded with book publishers to set the price of e-books artificially high in 2010, something Apple continues to deny.

The Justice Department said it was pleased with the order. It said consumers will benefit from lower e-book prices.

Apple said the company will appeal both rulings.
