US Judge Signs Off on Apple’s e-Book Conspiracy Deal – Patently Apple

 

The settlement was deemed by the court to be “fair, reasonable and adequate.”

 

In an unusual twist, the agreement is contingent on the upholding of a verdict in a July 2013 federal court ruling that Apple violated antitrust laws by orchestrating a conspiracy with five publishers to raise e-book prices.

 

Apple is appealing that decision. If Apple’s federal conviction is overturned, no money will be paid. In the case of a retrial, Apple will pay a reduced settlement figure.
