Oh, unless the judge orders apply Apple to divest iBooks they definitely have won.

The bad publicity will fade with the next "miraculous release" but the 15%-and-growing market share will remain.

The only player that made out better than Apple out of the conspiracy is Amazon. And that because they didn't have to break the law to reap its many benefits.

(The list of losers starts with consumers and goes on from there, most prominently including everybody else in the conspiracy.)
