Here’s Apple’s Closing Slide Deck in E-Book Case, and the DOJ’s, Too

Summation_Apple_ebooksAfter three weeks of arguments in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the U.S. Department of Justice’s e-books price-fixing case against Apple concluded today with final summations. As part of its presentation, Apple showed off a 136-slide deck laying out its argument that it did not conspire with publishers to illegally fix e-book prices. The DOJ — which contends Apple was the “ringmaster” of a plan that raised mainstream e-book pricing well above the $9.99 price point Amazon had established by shifting the industry from a wholesale model, where retailers set prices, to an agency model where publishers set prices — provided a slide deck laying out that argument as well. Both are embedded below.

There was a worry before I started this that I was going to burn every bridge I had. But I realize now that there are some bridges that are worth burning.
