Apple’s legal team is trying to prevent DoJ getting an injunction over the company’s ebook antics. The US Department of Justice believes that an injunction will stop the tech giant fixing the price of ebooks. In response, the company complained that the DoJ injunction will “inflict punishment” and therefore must be rejected by the court.
The two parties are trying to find out how to stop the tech giant shafting its clients with its anti-trust antics. A few weeks ago, the judge ruled that Apple had conspired with 5 major publishers to undermine pricing by competitors including Amazon.com. The latter is known as a leader of ebook market.
Media reports confirm that the Department of Justice wants the company to hire an external monitor and allow ebook retailers add hyperlinks to their own sites in their applications without charge. The Apple was also required to set limits on how the company negotiates for other material, like movies, music and TV shows.
The tech giant claimed that the government can’t make a successful company change the way it makes business decisions. Apple sees itself as a very powerful company, while the government has no power to run the country.
Surprisingly enough, the authorities appear to be caving in to Apple not like they were with Microsoft. Thus far, the Department of Justice has already suggested halving the length of its previously intended injunction to 5 years from 10, with leave to seek 5 one-year extensions in case of necessity. The judge also recommended that Apple hold staggered negotiations with the publishers, starting in 2 years, thus trying to minimize the chance of future collusion. Although the authorities removed a demand about the management of App Store, it appeared not good enough for the giant which still believes that it did nothing wrong and can continue.
The Department of Justice said that Apple is going to continue business as usual, paying no attention to the antitrust legislation. The outfit told the court that it should have no confidence that Apple effectively is able to ensure that its unauthorized conduct won’t be repeated. The authorities pointed out that there must be significant oversight by a person not inside Apple’s culture of insensitivity to basic tenets of antitrust legislation.

|Who gives a cr@p about Apple ... the last time I used one of THEIR hardware devices was 1986 ... and I was in school and had no choice then.|
Since then I've looked carefully at hardware options before buying, and there's NOTHING about Apple devices that appeal to my inner geek (you can't upgrade them, repair them, expand them, etc ... they're a money pit). There are VERY FEW technical minded people who will buy Apple devices for their own use!
I have a 64GB Surface tablet with USB & SD card connectors (which Apple couldn't be bothered to add to the iPad), a powerful Gaming/Multimedia PC (Intel i7 CPU, 32GB RAM, 2x 4GB 690 GTX graphics, 12TB+ storage [which no Apple could duplicate]), and a prepaid phone that does everything I need it to and no more.
Like I said ... WHO NEEDS APPLE??
|@3 now i feel what your saying but ausies and uk also asia share a huge part of buying apple crap.. myself i run a 32 gig 768GB RAID 0 (3x256GB SSD) + 256GB mSATA SSD Storage Drive,Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB GDDR5 - NVIDIA SLI Enabled,i7-4930MX Processor.. but yet apple heads ask me if its better than a macbook pro smh ....|
