Apple responds to DOJ: Antitrust accusations untrue

(via cnet) Apple representative Tom Neumayr was quoted as follows:

"The DOJ's accusation of collusion against Apple is simply not true. The launch of the iBookstore in 2010 fostered innovation and competition, breaking Amazon's monopolistic grip on the publishing industry. Since then customers have benefited from eBooks that are more interactive and engaging. Just as we've allowed developers to set prices on the App Store, publishers set prices on the iBookstore."

At this point we're still waiting on the DOJ to respond, however this could turn ugly real quick, and the real core issue here, DRM is being largely overlooked.
