INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Attorney General’s Office says Hoosiers who bought electronic books from April 1, 2010, to May 21, 2012, should now be receiving account credits or checks totaling about $8.6 million.
The office announced Thursday the payments result from the successful prosecution of a price-fixing case against Apple, Inc. Credits range from $1.56 to $6.93.
Apple paid $400 million in nationwide consumer compensation after the U.S. Supreme Court denied Apple’s request to review the decision of a lower court finding Apple had violated the antitrust laws.
The office says Indiana consumers account for approximately 2 percent of e-book purchasers nationwide.
