Just four days after a federal judge approved the Department of Justice’s settlement with HarperCollins, Hachette and Simon & Schuster for allegedly colluding with Apple to fix ebook prices, Amazon has already begun discounting HarperCollins ebooks. For now it appears that Hachette and Simon & Schuster ebooks are not being discounted yet.
“We are happy to again be lowering prices on a broad assortment of HarperCollins titles,” an Amazon spokeswoman told me.
“HarperCollins has reached agreements with our e-retailers that are consistent with the final judgment,” a HarperCollins spokeswoman told me. “Dynamic pricing and experimentation will continue to be a priority for us as we move forward.”
