Book publisher Penguin has agreed to a $75 million settlement with consumers and states in the ebook pricing lawsuit, several months after it settled with the Department of Justice. The other publishers in the case -- HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Hachette and Macmillan -- had already settled with both the states and the DOJ. Penguin's settlement is by far the largest that any of the publishers have reached.
I didn't know about the Penguin/Randomhouse merger. That is going to be one huge publisher.
