"A lawyer, [Bob Kohn], who opposes the Justice Department’s proposed antitrust settlement with three publishers of e-books has filed an amicus brief ... in the form of a comic strip ... He opted for the unusual format after U.S. District Judge Denise Cote of Manhattan limited his brief to five pages ... The U.S. Justice Department filed suit in April against Apple and five publishers claiming a conspiracy to address’s low e-book pricing of $9.99 that was often below its cost. The DOJ saw a price-fixing conspiracy, while supporters said Amazon’s low prices were killing off competition and allowing it to gain market share." -- Debra Cassens Weiss, ABA journal Sep 05, 2012.
