Apple protests ruling on e-books

MGN Online

NEW YORK (AP) - Apple claims a judge's finding that it violated antitrust laws on e-book prices is "a radical departure" from the way such laws are interpreted.

The electronics company says if the ruling is allowed to stand it will "chill competition and harm consumers."

The claims are in Apple's formal written arguments in its appeal to overturn a judgment against it last year.

Apple is asking a federal court in New York to either overturn the judgment in its favor - or grant a new trial before a different judge.
