NEW YORK (AP) -- The U.S. government has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Apple Inc. and book publishers. It said Wednesday that the publishers conspired with Apple to raise retail electronic-book prices to limit competition.
The government also filed papers saying it has reached a settlement with publishers Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster.
It says it will proceed with its lawsuit against Apple and other publishers, including Holtzbrinck Publishers, doing business as Macmillan, and The Penguin Publishing Co. Ltd., doing business as Penguin Group.
