Nathan Olivarez-Giles recently wrote an article in The Wall Street Journal, reporting on how Apple is to refund money to consumers who were overcharged for e-books bought, following the settling of an antitrust lawsuit.
Below is an excerpt from the article:
“On Tuesday, e-book retailers began issuing Apple-funded credits to customer accounts. This follows Apple’s agreement to pay $400 million in a settlement that ended anantitrust complaint that accused the company and five of the largest U.S. book publishers of working together to drive up e-book prices.
If you bought e-books from Apple,Amazon.com Inc., Barnes & Noble Inc. and Kobo Inc. between April 1, 2010 and May 21, 2012, this settlement could affect you, so check your emails for notes from those vendors.”
