US government won against Apple Inc over e-book prices that conspiratorial went up

A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that Apple Inc conspired to raise the retail prices of e-books, and said a trial for damages will follow.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan is a victory for the U.S. government and various states, which the judge said are entitled to injunctive relief.

The publishers have already settled with the federal government on e-book pricing.

Cote ruled after a non-jury trial that ended on June 20.
