HarperCollins Publishers L.L.C. Key Developments

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.

Wisconsin Residents to Split $3 Million from e-Book Settlement

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said March 25, 2014 that the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York has now approved the $166 million in settlements of the lawsuit brought by the Wisconsin Department of Justice and the attorneys general in 32 other states against Hachette Book Group Inc., HarperCollins Publishers LLC, Simon & Schuster Inc., Holtzbrinck Publishers LLC (d/b/a Macmillan), and Penguin Group (USA) Inc. An account credit or check will be issued based on the number of eligible e-books purchased by a consumer during the claims period of April 1, 2010, to May 21, 2012. Apple Inc. of Cupertino, Calif., was also sued but did not agree to settle. After a three-week trial in June 2013, U.S. District Judge Denise Cote found that Apple played a central role in facilitating and executing a conspiracy to eliminate retail price competition in order to raise e-book prices, in violation of federal and state antitrust laws. A second trial to determine the amount of damages Apple must pay for that violation has been tentatively scheduled for May. If successful, additional account credits or checks will be distributed to Wisconsin consumers in the future.
