Any company can charge what it likes, pay whatever royalties it likes, offer whatever terms it likes. There's nothing at all wrong with this. Amazon can charge whatever it likes, off whatever royalties it likes, and so can Apple. How much Apple, or anyone else, offers, takes, etc., has nothing to do with charges of price fixing.

Price fixing is when you conspire with others in a way that means you, and those others, will all charge a certain price, or restrict prices in any way, despite market forces. Apple most certain is guilty of price fixing because it conspired with five of the six big publishers to restrict prices. This is the definition of price fixing. The five publishers have already settled with the government.

Apple is NOT the writer's friend, though Amazon is probably the worst thing to happen to writers in many decades.

At any rate, you simply cannot conspire to set or restrict prices on anything, and this is exactly what Apple did.

Everyone makes mistakes. Most apologize when they do.

Why do you think books should cost more? Who do you think would pay $30 or more for paperback novel? How many people do you think would read a novel via pdf? I know I wouldn't.
