Maryland and other states sued Apple over e-book price fixing. Maryland customers will be now be splitting $9 million in credits.
According to the Baltimore Business Journal, the company was found to have conspired with several major publishers to jack up the prices of e-books. That means if you bought an e-book through Apple’s web store between April 2010 and May 2012, you should be receiving a credit in the next few days worth $6.93 for every New York Times bestseller, $1.57 for every other book.
If you were to ask me, I’d say a credit for a digital product is a cheap way to make up for a massive price-fixing conspiracy. According to the class-action settlement’s official web site, if you’d rather have received a check, you would have needed to file a request in 2014.
