Apple: DOJ wants Amazon to have a 'Significant Competitive Advantage'
Plaintiffs are seeking a remedy that would give Amazon a significant competitive advantage over Apple -- an advantage it is neither entitled to nor deserves. This is plainly improper and highly counterproductive.
Now -- after the trial is over and this court has ruled -- is not the time to adjudicate a whole new array of legal and factual issues based on evidence that is outside the record and which largely post-dates the events at issue.
Among the proposed changes the DoJ wants are the ability for e-book sellers to sell e-books within their apps on iOS without Apple taking a 30 percent cut. Given that Apple's business model includes a 30 percent cut of all content sold, this is understandably a hot issue for the company.
Apple is expected to meet with the judge overseeing the case later today to further discuss the proposals.
