The United states Department of Justice has filed the lawsuit against Apple, and several book publishers over fixing the price of ebooks. The lawsuit filed in NewYork District Court sued publishers Hachette, Harper Collins Macmillan, Simon&Schuster and Penguin for colluding with Apple to raise price of ebooks. The core of the issue comes sound to the rules Apple said of being in its book store. Before Apple got into ebook game, Amazon was selling ebooks for cheap at around 10 dollars. Amazon figure of cheap ebooks wouldn't tie its folks to buy a Kindle. And publishers weren't too happy because that just made it hard to sell hardbacks. Apple changed the game that with a iPad to get on the iPad, publishers would follow a new rule. They can set their own book price, no other online ebook store could sell for less so if Amazon want to sell book, they couldn't discount to stay competitve.
