Apple warns of “chilling effect” as antitrust trial ends Yahoo)
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), on trial for allegedly colluding to raise the price of e-books, said on Thursday an adverse ruling would have a “chilling effect” on how businesses investigate new markets.

The U.S. Justice Department accuses Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) of conspiring with U.S. publishers beginning in late 2009 to increase the price of e-books in an effort to undercut the pricing established by then-dominant Amazon.com Inc. The publishers have settled with the government.
