The Broad Strokes of the Hachette, HarperCollins and S&S Price-Fixing Settlement – Publisher’s Weekly – Andrew Albanese & Rachel Deahl
FINALLY. Need an understanding of what went down yesterday with the DOJ? Publisher’s Weekly wonderfully lays it out.
Three publishers—Hachette, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster—have agreed to a proposed settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice to settle federal claims of price fixing regarding e-books. PW takes an initial look at the broad strokes of the deal, and what it means for the settling publishers.
They have the terms, compliance, timing, and reaction. Definitely take a look at it.
