UNDATED (WHTC) -- A federal court has found Apple, Inc in violation of federal and state antitrust laws in an E-book price fixing scheme.  Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said, “This case should serve as a cautionary tale for any companies considering illegal price-fixing schemes at the expense of consumers.  Schette, along with 30 other state attorneys general and the attorneys general of the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico won a suit claiming Apple, Inc conspired with five major publishers to artificially raise e-book prices.  If you purchased an e-book with an artificially inflated price, you should have already received a notice from your retailer.
