Jeff John Roberts, writing for PaidContent:
The Justice Department released a document today that
characterized criticism by Apple and publishers of a controversial
price-fixing settlement as “self-serving” and ill-founded. The
Department also pointed to recent ventures by Google and Microsoft
as evidence that the e-book market is thriving and that Amazon’s
dominant position has been overstated.
I’ll bet Amazon sells more e-books in a day than Microsoft and Google combined do in a month. Not that sales numbers alone disprove the DOJ’s argument, but let’s not kid ourselves that Microsoft or Google have yet made a dent in the e-book market.
