» Judge rules against Apple in ebook antitrust suit

Jeff John Roberts (via The Loop):

A federal court in New York has come down hard on Apple in a closely watched case over ebook pricing. In a ruling issued Tuesday morning, US District Judge Denise Cote ruled that the company “brilliantly” organized a conspiracy to raise prices and thwart competition.

The company will appeal.

Been a rough four weeks for Internet pundits. First they had to pretend to be design experts and now they’re going to have to pretend to be antitrust experts. Godspeed, Internet pundits.
