As expected, Apple has filed an appeal disputing a July ruling that the company conspired to raise e-book prices. Apple told a federal appeals court the ruling “is a radical departure” from modern antitrust law, and warned it would “chill competition and harm consumers,” the Associated Press reports. The company seeks to either overturn the ruling, or be granted a new trial with a different judge. Apple was recently given a brief reprieve from an antitrust monitor assigned to watch over the company; a court ruled soon after that appointed monitor Michael Bromwich could remain on duty.
