Apple May Have a Chance at Overturning eBook Antitrust Decision

doj304Apple went to court yesterday to appeal Judge Cote’s decision that found the tech company guilty of conspiring to fix prices for eBooks.

According to reports, Apple looked good in the courtroom. Fortune has more:

At times Judge Jacobs came close to suggesting that the government had prosecuted the wrong company. At the very least, he said, a horizontal initiative “used to break the hold of a monopolist” ought not be found to be illegal per se. He likened any collusive conduct on the publishers’ part to “mice getting together to go put a bell on the cat.”

The justices are now considering the appeal and could take up to six months to decide the outcome.

Apple Returns to Court Today to Appeal eBook Decision

apple-logo-248x300Apple is heading to court today to appeal the DOJ’s 2013 decision in which the tech giant was found guilty of eBook price fixing.

Apple’s lawyers will be challenging antitrust rules “governing competition between marketing platforms—an important legal and economic issue that Judge Cote ignored,” according to The Wall Street Journal. Here is more from the publication:

On Monday Apple will ask the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York to overturn an antitrust verdict. U.S. v. Apple boils down to this: Amazon possessed a 90% market share in e-book sales, and Apple developed a method of carving into it, increasing competition. Nevertheless, federal Judge Denise Cote held that Apple violated the Sherman Act.

Since the judgement, Apple has faced a trial to determine the damages that Apple would have to pay.
