Apple Shakes Off Watchdog

Apple Shakes Off WatchdogIn 2013, Apple was found to have conspired with
publishers to fix the prices of digital books and was ordered by a court to let
an independent monitor investigate it to prevent future antitrust lawbreaking.

This week, Judge Denise Cote, sitting in a New York court, said the watchdog is
no longer needed after two years of inspections, with no sign of antitrust
wrongdoing, and a few lessons learned on legal compliance.

“The monitor has ably performed a significant public service in a
difficult environment … Apple has entirely revamped its antitrust compliance
program,” the judge wrote in her decision.
