Three Publishers Settle in Apple Pricing Collusion Case
by Nancy K. Herther
"In a move that could reshape the publishing industry," The Wall Street Journal declares, "a federal judge has approved a settlement with three of the nation's largest book publishers over alleged collusion in the pricing of e-books." Although premature and a bit dramatic, the comments reflect that we are seeing a milestone for the growing ebook industry with settlements in some of the outstanding Apple and publisher legal actions in the U.S. and Europe. Hatchette, Simon & Schuster, and HarperCollins agreed in April to the terms of settlement—that they terminate their existing arrangements with Apple and agree to refrain from any constraint on retailers' ability to set their own ebook prices for a period of 2 years. The agreement was approved on Sept. 14, 2012, and became effective immediately.

Apple-Samsung Case Highlights America’s Troubled Patent System
by Paula J. Hane
It's clear that Apple scored a major victory over Samsung in its recent and highly publicized patent dispute. A jury found that a number of Samsung's mobile devices infringed on Apple's patented designs and awarded damages of $1.05 billion to Apple. The jury also found that Apple had not violated any of the five patents Samsung asserted in the case. Apple then requested a ban on the sale of eight models of Samsung smartphones. Both companies are considering their next steps, while the media and blogosphere continue to buzz with reactions.
