DOJ posts opening statements in Apple e-book case

The U.S. Department of Justice has released its opening statements against Apple in the e-book pricing conspiracy case, which began in court today. Apple participated in a conspiracy with publishers to raise e-book prices, the DOJ claims. Over 80 slides are included, such as Apple’s emails to publishers, in which the DOJ attempts to illustrate how the company allegedly initiated the conspiracy. The publishers have all settled out of court, but Apple has denied any wrongdoing, despite emails that appear to suggest a deliberate coordinated effort to increase prices in the iBookstore.
