Apple Inc. must pay $450 million to end an antitrust suit after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to question a finding that the company orchestrated a scheme to raise the prices for electronic books.

The justices, without comment, turned away an appeal by Apple, leaving intact a federal appeals court ruling favoring the U.S. Justice Department and more than 30 states that sued.

The rebuff means Apple must comply with a settlement it reached with the states in 2014. The accord calls for Apple to pay $400 million to e-book consumers, $20 million to the states, and $30 million in legal fees.


Nell'anno solare 2015 Apple ha avuto ricavi per 235 miliardi

Come se un nostro ipotetico amico che guadagnasse 30.000 euro l'anno ricevesse una sanzione di 57 euro.

direi che inizia a notarsi.
