It'll be a slam dunk for the DOJ. It's pretty obvious that there was collusion and price fixing. Not even Apple's iBillions can change that.

Hopefully. I am a huge supporter of Amazon, and as far as I know, they are all about serving the needs of their customers.

I know some companies have issues because Amazon can operate and sell at a lower overhead than brick and mortar stores, ie you can get that 99 cent usb cable instead of paying $19.95 for it.

Also, people crying about the lost tax revenues.

But that aside, I haven't read any major news articles about Amazon pulling shady deals to purposely screw someone else over.

o dam collusion to compete against amazon who already have a stranglehold
you're some expert now are you? sources? am looking for obviousness
looks like Apple wanted to compete against competitors and the publishers got together to make it happen
Apple would have gotten their share of profits no matter the price it was the publishers who made the fatal choice
