Apple Loses Ebook Price-fixing Appeal

Just give up. It's not worth it.
Panzer was out in the Catosphere today when he heard a lot of loud teeth gnashing and fist pounding. Following all the noise lead him to the Publishers' Weekly site. There our brave kitty pilot found the latest news on the Apple price-fixing case.

According to a post by Andrew Albanese, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld Judge Denise Cole's 2013 ruling that Apple did participate in ebook price-fixing. This finding clears the way for Apple to be required to refund $400 million to ebook buyers.

But ... don't hold your breath.

Apple still has the right to appeal to the full Second Circuit Court of Appeals ... and beyond ... up the ladder to the Supreme Court.

Panzer says, "Geez. Just give it up. You humans are spending more money on attorney fees than you'd have to pay ebook buyers and in fines."

Note: This is an e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y l-o-n-g post. Bring a h-u-g-e cup of tea.
