• Apple Appeals eBook Ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court

    Apple is having a difficult time accepting the outcome of the infamous eBook price-fixing legal battle that has now consumed a considerable portion of the company's time in recent years.

    Apple, published reports tonight indicate, is going to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to "overturn a federal judge’s finding that it conspired to fix the prices of ebooks when it launched its original iPad and iBook store in January 2010."

    Fortune's sources make it sound as though Apple has no intention of accepting defeat and moving forward.

    “This case . . . presents issues of surpassing importance to the United States economy,” Apple reportedly argues in its filing with the high court. “Dynamic, disruptive entry into new or stagnant markets—the lifeblood of American economic growth—often requires the very type of” conduct that Apple engaged in, the company argues, and which U.S. District Judge Denise Cote of Manhattan found to be illegal in July 2013.

    Although Apple indicated in June, at the time of its most recent legal setback in this matter, that the company might go to the Supreme Court, it wasn't yet clear -- until this week -- that Apple would definitely go this route to finally achieve vindication.
