Apple, Amazon, and the DOJ (Again)

Apple bashes Amazon and proposed ebook settlement — paidContent:

“In all, the Government met with at least fourteen Amazon employees—yet not once under oath. The Government required that Amazon turn over a mere 4,500 documents, a fraction of what was required of others.”


Remember back in April, when I said the DOJ case against Apple regarding eBooks seemed like it was authored by Amazon? Yeah, looks like it just about was.

And now they’re trying to force Apple into a settlement, though Apple wants to go to trial. So much for due process.

There’s some seriously screwed up stuff going on lately with our justice system here in the U.S.
