E-Book Settlement

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): The state has announced a proposed settlement with e-book publisher and computer giant Apple for its part in a 2-year price-fixing conspiracy. The agreement would resolve claims brought by Indiana, and 32 other states on behalf of customers that overpaid for their e-books.

The settlement calls for Apple to pay 450 million dollars total. E-book purchasers nationwide have already received compensation from a settlement paid by the five other publishers involved.
