The e-book conspiracy comes to a close
The New Yorker
A typical conception of antitrust laws is that they protect consumers from monopolies, preserving competition at the expense of the biggest, most prominent player in a given market. But that's not always the case. Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Denise Cote ruled, in a 160-page opinion, that Apple had conspired with five of North America's largest book publishers in a scheme to raise and fix e-book prices, violating Section 1 of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

E-book ruling gives Amazon an advantage
The New York Times
Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, loves disrupting markets. In that regard, he must be having a delightful summer. The book business, once so mired in the past it seemed part of the antiques trade, is up for grabs. A federal judge ruled last week that Apple had illegally conspired with five of the six biggest publishers to try to raise prices in the budding e-books market.

Why Barnes & Noble is good for Amazon
The New York Times
On Thursday night in Clifton, N.J., Barnes & Noble was a way station, a third place between work and home where people sought respite and diversion. With its high ceilings, wide aisles and a large Starbucks, it is the kind of retail outlet that gives big-box stores a good name. In one aisle, a father and daughter were having a spirited generational discussion over the side-by-side covers of "The Great Gatsby," one of which bore an image of Leonardo DiCaprio.

E-book revenue growth in US has slowed in 2013
Digital Book World
E-book revenue growth in the U.S. has slowed in 2013 after years of double- and triple-digit gains. E-book revenues for trade publishing grew 5 percent in the first quarter of 2013 to $393.6 million as measured across the adult fiction/non-fiction, children's and young adult and religious segments. Meanwhile, total trade sales were down about 5 percent to $1.47 billion in the first quarter, meaning that e-books now account for nearly 27 percent of all trade sales.

Nook tablet, an epilogue
Engadget
The announcement by Barnes & Noble that it would discontinue its Nook tablets marked the exit of what once promised to be a strong rival to Amazon, at least among bibliophiles. Barnes & Noble's entry into the tablet market took place amidst an annual game of leapfrog with its internet-based rival. Surviving for three iterations, the color Nook devices were products that had a particular focus on media consumption — especially reading — and eschewed open access to apps.

No dog days of summer for publishing this July
Digital Book World
Typically July is one of the slowest months in book publishing. Summer is the time for vacations, and the store traffic is traditionally slowest in July. Kids are out of school and not reading as much. But this July has been full of major news and events and each will have a long-lasting effect on the industry.

Replacing photographers with iPhone reporters a step backward
Wired
Earlier this year the Chicago Sun-Times made national headlines when it purged its photo staff and replaced them with iPhone-wielding reporters. Track what many suspected would be a decline in the paper's visual coverage as Chicago freelance photographer Taylor Glascock started a Tumblr that compares the Sun-Times' photography with that of its competitor, the Chicago Tribune, which still uses staff photographers.
