C|M|Law’s James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law Chris Sagers was widely quoted in the press recently concerning the Justice Department’s antitrust case against Apple, alleging that Apple had coordinated a price-fixing conspiracy among publishers of electronic books.  In addition to his own post about the case on the HuffingtonPost (see http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chris-sagers/the-fate-of-apple-and-ant_b_3480835.html) Sagers was quoted in several  articles in Publisher’s Weekly (concerning Apple’s trial strategy, see http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/content-and-e-books/article/57395-at-hearing-judge-says-she-is-leaning-against-apple.html,  concerning the likely scope of the remedies it may face, (see http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/content-and-e-books/article/57395-at-hearing-judge-says-she-is-leaning-against-apple.html), and in a long summation of the case after trial had closed (see http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/retailing/article/57943-why-apple-loses.html).  He was quoted on the technology website CNET on the testimony of key witness Eddy Cue (see http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57589185-37/apples-eddy-cue-yep-we-caused-e-book-pricing-to-rise/), and in another long summary of the case (see http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57586765-37/apple-and-the-doj-face-off-over-e-book-prices-faq/), as well as in the widely read InformationToday (see http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/NewsBreaks/Apple-Gambles-on-Winning-Ebook-Antitrust-Suit-90274.asp).
