U.S. antitrust settlement with e-book publishers should be approved, feds say

“A U.S. antitrust settlement with e- book publishers Simon & Schuster, Hachette Book Group and HarperCollins should be approved by a judge, lawyers for the federal government said in a court filing,” David Glovin reports for Bloomberg.
“Under the settlement, the three companies agreed to cancel contracts with electronic-book sellers that allowed publishers to set prices,” Glovin reports. “Claims by the U.S., 15 states and Puerto Rico are pending against Apple Inc. and other companies.”
