The United States Justice Department and Macmillan have reached a settlement over the antitrust lawsuit relating to e-book pricing, meaning book retailers will now be able to discount the digital titles of all major publishers in the US.¬†Macmillan is the last of five major publishers to settle the suit, filed against them by the Justice Department last year. Three publishers settled in April, while a fourth, Penguin Group, settled in December. The agreement leaves Apple Inc., as the only remaining outstanding defendant in the government’s lawsuit. A spokeswoman for Apple declined to comment.
