Abstract

The e-book market is quite remarkable. The economic models for the distribution of this unique product are original and differ from one jurisdiction to another. The antitrust litigations, in both the US and Europe, against Apple and publishing companies as well as the French law on e-Book price-fixing are challenging the boundaries of antitrust.

Keywords: Antitrust, E-books

JEL Classification: K21, L40, L41
