DOJ Proposes Injunction on Apple Ebook Practices
by George H. Pike
After having proven that Apple conspired with five major book publishers to fix the prices of ebooks, the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeks to prevent Apple from continuing its anticompetitive practices not only in its ebook sales, but also with its movie, music, and app sales. In a filing with the federal court, the DOJ would prevent Apple from enforcing its existing ebook contracts, ban "agency model" contracts with book publishers for at least 5 years, and ban Apple from entering into "any agreement" with any "content supplier" that would "increase, fix, or set" prices.

Five Ways to Get Your Book Published
by Brandi Scardilli
In the era of user-generated content, anyone can write a book and get it published, whether it's on librarianship, Big Data, or data scientists. There are dozens of companies to help authors find the right editorial services, design assistance, printing, marketing, and distribution for their works. These days, authors don't need a huge publishing house. One of the best ways to get published and get involved in the process is to sign up with a do-it-yourself (DIY) publisher. Be prepared: Though these publishers charge authors for specific services, you'll still end up doing most of the work yourself. But on the plus side, you'll retain creative control of your book.
