Justice Dept Sues Apple and Other Publishers For Conspiring to Inflate E-book Prices

If you ever wondered why e-books were so pricey, now you know.

The Justice Department announced Wednesday that it has filed an antitrust lawsuit in New York against Apple and five big-time publishers,  Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin and Simon & Schuster, accusing them of conspiring to keep the price of ebooks high.   At the same time, the department said it had filed proposed settlements with Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster.

The settlement would grant retailers–such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble–the freedom to reduce the prices of their e-book titles, the Justice Department said.

“As a result of this alleged conspiracy, we believe that consumers paid millions of dollars more for some of the most popular titles,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement.   “We allege that executives at the highest levels of these companies–concerned that e-book sellers had reduced prices–worked together to eliminate competition among stores selling e-books, ultimately increasing prices for consumers.”

 Apparently the DC Elections Board didn’t find a recent activist video about  voter fraud very funny.

The undercover video posted online triggered a DC Board of Elections investigation Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. The video showed an unidentified member of Project Veritas attempting to vote as U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder at a D.C.  polling station.

The AP quotes board members as saying the voting booth is “sacrosanct” and isn’t the place to debate or try to influence policy questions, such as voter ID laws.

In this latest video from activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, DC’s lack of ID requirement is brought under scrutiny. The board said the incident on video was fraud but acknowledges it’s not clear whether the actions could lead to prosecution. The activist insisted on leaving to get an ID before accepting Holder’s ballot.

Appeals Court Rules Against 2 Secret Service Agents in 1st Amendment Case

By Courthouse News Service

Two Secret Service agents must face claims that they violated the First Amendment rights of protesters at a 2004 campaign stop for President George W. Bush, the 9th Circuit ruled Monday.

The federal appeals court in Portland, Ore., denied qualified immunity to agents Tim Wood and Rob Savage, finding that they may have engaged in viewpoint discrimination when they ordered anti-Bush demonstrators to move two blocks away from the president’s hotel and undergo security screening. Bush supporters, meanwhile, were allowed to get closer to the hotel without screening.
