Apple’s Gets an Outside Antitrust Monitor to Oversee E-Books Business

On Thursday, Judge Denise Cote assigned Apple a third-party monitor to oversee compliance with federal antitrust laws as part of the U.S. Department of Justice’s successful case against the company over e-book price fixing.

AppleInsider:

Judge Cote’s order named former DOJ Inspector General and federal prosecutor Michael Bromwich as External Monitor at Apple, a position he will keep for a period of two years.

Prior to his stint at the DOJ, Bromwich served as the first director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, a body created in response to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  He has also served as an independent monitor to the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia in 2002, and also served as a federal lawyer in the U.S. case against Oliver North.

Apple was found guilty in July of colluding with five major e-book publishers in a price-fixing scheme covering e-books sold in the iBookstore.
