Apple denies accusations of collusion over e-books

Sunday, April 15, 2012

WASHINGTON -- Apple Inc. said Friday the U.S. government's accusation that it conspired with major book publishers to raise the price of e-books is untrue.

Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr said that instead, Apple fostered innovation and competition by introducing its iBookstore in 2010. He said customers have benefited from e-books that are more interactive and engaging.

Apple's entry into the e-book marketplace has broken “Amazon's monopolistic grip on the publishing industry,” said Neumayr.
