Apple: 'We've done nothing wrong'

After a judge in New York ruled that Apple took part in a conspiracy to fix electronic book prices, the technology giant said it will appeal the decision.

In a statement, Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr, said: "Apple did not conspire to fix e-book pricing."

"When we introduced the iBookstore in 2010, we gave customers more choice, injecting much needed innovation and competition into the market, breaking Amazon's monopolistic grip on the publishing industry. We've done nothing wrong."
