In a court decision released on
July 10, 2013
, U.S. District Judge
ruled that Apple violated antitrust laws by conspiring with five major publishers to raise the retail prices of e-books. In her ruling, Judge Cote stated that Apple "played a central role in facilitating and executing" the conspiracy and "the evidence is overwhelming that Apple knew of the unlawful aims of the conspiracy and joined the conspiracy with the specific intent to help it succeed."
The investigation concerns whether Apple's Board of Directors knowingly engaged in this conspiracy and/or were aware of such conspiracy, to the detriment of Apple and its shareholders.
