WASHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO, April 10 (Reuters) - The Justice Department could sue Apple Inc as early as Wednesday over alleged electronic book price-fixing, while settling with several publishers as early as this week, two people familiar with the matter said.
The Justice Department is investigating alleged price-fixing by Apple and five major publishers: CBS Corp's Simon & Schuster Inc; HarperCollins Publishers Inc; Lagardere SCA's Hachette Book Group; Pearson and Macmillan, a unit of Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH.
A lawsuit against Apple, one of the parties not in negotiations over a potential settlement, could come as early as Wednesday but no final decision had been made, the people said.

What, did Apple think that they would be immune from the Fascist in Chief? American businesses, large and small, are the target of this anti-capitalist regime.
Did Apple forget to pay its protection money?
Amazing. This has to cause stress for the latte drinking, Apple zealots who tend to support Obama.
And, like the good commies they are, I fully expect Apple employees and executives to support Obama.
remember the story of Obama asking Jobs about bringing his manufacturing back to the US and Jobs tried to give him a lesson in reality?
O really doesn’t like reality
Yes....liberal Jobs is dead....Obama has no loyalty to Apple now. Apple has money Obama needs...that’s all there is to that.
Its revenge for that! I also hope Jobs’ wife is proud to have been used like a condom at the SOTU address!
Well if Apple hadn’t outsource production to China, perhaps Americans would rush to Apple’s defense.
Good luck with that, Apple.
Yesterday it was Microsoft today it is Apple. Tomorrow it will be Google.
Raising taxes is hard work. It involves amassing political support.
Shakedowns are much easier and unilateral.
Google's been in the Obama crosshairs quite a while: google monopoly doj.
Ipad built in america would cost 4,000 due to our insane regulations, labor laws, enviro laws, etc.
Blame ourselves, not apple.
Nice hundred-billion-dollar shop you got here. Shame if something happened to it...
Either Apple did not pay as is the CHICAGO WAY or one of Apple’s competitors paid a whole lot more.
“Yesterday it was Microsoft today it is Apple. Tomorrow it will be Google.”
Ok, so you progressive business leaders pay attention:
Community organizers specialize in shakedowns, and are expert in that arena.
Barack Obama was, and in many ways, still is a community organizer.
Guess what’s coming to all profitable businesses that aren’t already playing ball with Obama?
Apple made their Chinese Communist bed, now they woke up in it.
Beoing, Gibson Guitars, etc etc etc
This communist pofs needs to go. I would vote for Charles manson over obama at this point.
Price fixing is bad because.... OK, I’m at a loss.
I guess there are no alternatives to Apple products.
OTOH, government enforced monopolies, like school prisons and the USPS are good.

Just don’t say you’ll vote for Rom***!!! wolfman23601 will come along and set you straight!
This communist slumbag and his entire gang of marxist street agitators are trying to foment CW2.
