Explaining that it has received a “voluminous” amount of comments regarding the e-book price-fixing charges it filed against Apple and five publishers, the Department of Justice has asked Judge Denise Cote to allow the department to bypass print publication of the letters in the Federal Register in favor of posting them on the antitrust division Web site along with printing the address of the site in the Register. According to the DoJ, it has already received over 150 letters totaling about 200 pages and expects “a similar or greater” amount before the comment period expires on June 25
Wonder who is writing. Also too, the public comment period ends on June 25, not June 12 as was first reported on this forum. There is still time to write!
