I should have commented on the DOJ v. Apple lawsuit yesterday when Judge Denise Cote handed down her decision in the matter. The problem was I couldn't stop laughing.
Folks, if you break the law, the excuse of "The Devil made me do it!" is NOT a defense. Substitute "Amazon" for "The Devil" and the results will be pretty much the same. Don't believe me? Try it the next time you get pulled over for speeding.
Not once did Apple present any evidence that they did not collude with five of what-was-then the Big Six publishing houses. (Random House, which was not accused of conspiracy to fix prices, has since merged with Penguin.)
If you don't believe me, feel free to examine the evidence (which is public in the U.S.), and read Judge Cote's opinion.
Of course, Apple will spend millions to fight this all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. On one hand, I'd love to be one of their attorneys.
On the other hand, I don't want to be associated with stupid clients.
