On day 5, the government uses HarperCollins's words against it.
FORTUNE -- Plaintiff's Exhibit 865, introduced for the Department of Justice by attorney Larry Buterman after he spent an hour cross examining HarperCollins CEO Brian Murray -- examination that was like pulling teeth -- illustrates as well as anything the gap between the government's case and Apple's (AAPL) defense.
It consists of four quotes from HarperCollins executives -- two from Murray himself MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 10, 2013 1:15 PM ET
A Google exec, an Apple exec and the only publisher who stayed loyal to Amazon.
FORTUNE -- We got a peek at the witness list in U.S.A. v. Apple, the e-book antitrust trial scheduled to begin its second of three weeks Monday in a Manhattan federal courthouse.
On deck for today, according to our notes:
Thomas Turvey: The Google (GOOG) director of strategic partnerships whose written testimony was demolished Thursday by Apple's (AAPL) MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 10, 2013 8:26 AM ET
Between WWDC and the e-book antitrust trial, Apple's digital dealmaker has a busy week.
FORTUNE -- If the trade press reports are true, Eddy Cue will take the stage Monday at Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco to introduce a new music streaming service that reporters have dubbed -- probably with good reason -- iRadio.
Three days later, Cue is scheduled to appear in a Manhattan federal court as the star witness MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 9, 2013 6:57 AM ET
Judge Cote may be backing away from her preliminary view of the DOJ's antitrust case.
FORTUNE -- A subtle but potentially important shift took place Thursday in the Manhattan federal courthouse where U.S. District Judge Denise Cote just wrapped up the first week of the three-week civil antitrust case known as U.S.A. v. Apple.
One of the central questions in the case is whether Apple (AAPL) executives told the six biggest book MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 7, 2013 7:41 AM ET
The name -- and property -- of Amazon's CEO surfaces in Apple's e-book antitrust trial.
FORTUNE -- "I'm not comfortable discussing the contents of that meeting."
That's what Russell Grandinetti, Amazon's (AMZN) vice president for Kindle content, said when asked in a Manhattan federal court Friday about a meeting he attended in Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' Seattle boathouse on Sunday Jan. 24, 2010.
It was the only question in more than four hours MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 6, 2013 2:12 PM ET
The tenor of the Apple trial changed dramatically when Amazon took the stand.
FORTUNE -- The lawyers defending Apple (AAPL) in the e-book antitrust case would like nothing better than to make the trial be about Amazon (AMZN), not their client, and on Wednesday they got their chance when Russell Grandinetti took the stand.
In earlier testimony from two publishing executives -- Penguin's David Shanks and Simon & Schuster's Carolyn Reidy -- MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 6, 2013 7:46 AM ET
Remarks made after the iPad introduction are now evidence in the Apple antitrust trial.
FORTUNE -- Long-time Apple (AAPL) watchers will remember this golden oldie from 2010.
Steve Jobs had just wrapped up his Jan. 27 introduction of the iPad and iBookstore when the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg got his ear in the post-keynote press scrum.
Why, Mossberg asked Jobs, would anyone buy an e-book from Apple for $14.99 when they could buy MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 5, 2013 1:56 PM ET
Day 2 of the Apple antitrust trial focused on Kevin Saul's price-matching provision.
FORTUNE -- Sometime between New Years Day and Jan. 4, 2010, Kevin Saul, one of Apple's (AAPL) in-house attorneys, sat at his office desk in Cupertino and hammered out a paragraph of legalese that the Department of Justice has characterized as the linchpin of Apple's illegal scheme to raise the price of e-books.
The 48-word paragraph ended up, more MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 5, 2013 7:42 AM ET
The outlines of each side's case were clearly laid in Monday's opening arguments.
FORTUNE -- The first rule of law, goes the old lawyers joke, is that if the facts are against you, you argue the law. The second rule is that if the law is against you, you argue the facts.
Based on each side's opening arguments on the first day of U.S.A. v. Apple, it's clear that the Department of MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 4, 2013 8:06 AM ET
The best ones, curiously, had nothing to do with Apple.
FORTUNE -- If U.S.A. v. Apple Inc. were decided on the basis of opening day PowerPoint presentations, the government could have rested its case before the first witness was called.
The Department of Justice's visual presentation (see link to pdf below) was like something you'd expect from Apple (AAPL). The slides were simple, to the point and thoughtfully laid out. Companies were logos. MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 3, 2013 7:43 PM ET
