Massachusetts consumers Receives More Than $5 Million from Settlements over Electronic Book Price Fixing Lawsuit Brought Against Apple Inc. and Five Large E-Book Publishers

Massachusetts consumers are in line to collectively receive more than $5 million from settlements over an electronic book price fixing lawsuit brought against Apple Inc. and five large e-book publishers. The lawsuit was brought by the attorneys general of 33 states, including Massachusetts, and the total settlement was $166 million. The settlements have been approved by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The lawsuit alleged that Apple; Hachette Book Group Inc.; HarperCollins Publishers LLC; Simon & Schuster Inc.; Holtzbrinck Publishers LLC, which does business as Macmillan; and Penguin Group (USA) Inc. conspired to eliminate retail price competition in order to raise e-book prices.

E-Book Buyers to Receive $166 Million in Credits over Price-Fixing Case

E-book consumers will receive compensation worth $166 million in aggregate, pursuant to settlements entered into by the attorneys general of numerous states with five e-book publishers on a price collusion case. The settlements arose out of an investigation and subsequent lawsuit brought by 33 states against Apple Inc. and five publishers - Hachette Book Group USA Inc., CBS Corp.'s Simon & Schuster Inc., News Corp.'s HarperCollins Publishers LLC, Penguin Group (USA) Inc. and Macmillan Publishers Inc. - over their alleged collusion to raise pricing on e-books. A federal judge ruled July 2013 that Apple conspired with the publishers.
