NY judge pledges not to overdo Apple book remedies

Aug 27, 2013

A New York judge says she doesn't want to intrude much on how Apple does business after ruling that the company fixed prices on electronic books.

Judge Denise Cote (COHT) made the observation Tuesday as she revised remedies that government lawyers proposed after their victory over Apple Inc. last month.

The judge found that the maker of iPods, iPads and iPhones had conspired with publishers in 2010 to destroy Amazon's $9.99 e-book price.

Cote said she'll likely approve remedies next week.

An Apple lawyer told the judge the company continues to disagree with her antitrust finding and will pursue its appeal. But Theodore Boutrous Jr. also says that the Cupertino, Calif.-based company will be a model corporate citizen if it doesn't win on appeal.
