After a long and winding process to get to this point, we have now entered the final week of the trial born of the U.S. government's antitrust case against Apple.
Following an eventful two weeks of courtroom developments and revelations, Apple's defense team will do its thing over the next four days in hopes of fully exonerating Apple from claims that the company participated in an ebook price-fixing scheme.
On Thursday, Apple’s Eddy Cue testified in federal court to profess Apple’s innocence. “I didn’t raise prices,” said Cue, who will return to the stand today.
- Rob McDonald: the head of Apple's U.S. iBookstore
- Eric Gray, Apple's director of operations of iTunes
- Theresa Horner: head of digital content at Barnes & Noble
- Dr. Michelle Burtis, an expert witness from Cornerstone Research
- Dr. Ben Klein, professor emeritus of economics from UCLA
- Dr. Kevin M. Murphy, an economics professor at the University of Chicago.
It may take upwards of three weeks for the presiding judge to reach a decision in the matter.
