eBook Pricing Lawsuit Generates Mountain of Commentary

The Department of Justice has received a mountain of commentary from concerned publishers, authors and readers about its civil lawsuit over eBook price-fixing. The deadline for submitting letters is June 25th.

According to The Tunney Act, “members of the public have an opportunity to comment on the proposed settlement before it is accepted by the court.” If you want to share your thoughts about the case with the Department of Justice, visit our How to Write the DOJ about the eBook Pricing Lawsuit page.

Publishers Weekly has more: “Explaining that it has received a ‘voluminous’ amount of comments regarding the e-book price-fixing charges it filed against Apple and five publishers, the Department of Justice has asked Judge Denise Cote to allow the department to bypass print publication of the letters in the Federal Register in favor of posting them on the antitrust division Web site along with printing the address of the site in the Register.”
