Apple now facing ebook price fixing allegations in CanadaA couple of weeks ago, we reported that the US Department of Justice sued Apple along with publishers regarding alleged ebook price fixing. Apple of course denied the charges and there have been talks about other countries looking to sue Apple over the same issue as well. Taking that step would be Canada where a lawyer, Norman Painchaud, took the opportunity to sue on behalf of any Canadian citizen who might have purchased an ebook from Apple over the last two years. At the moment there are reportedly three such lawsuits in Canada who are all seeking damages for Canadians who might have purchased an ebook and who might have felt wronged at the alleged price fixing. Apple is currently planning to fight the Department of Justice’s charges in court so we wouldn’t be surprised if they did the same in Canada.
