    In a courtroom located in Manhattan, the U.S. Department of Justice presented its opening arguments in the USA vs. Apple Inc, antitrust e-book price fixing trial. The Department of Justice filed suit last April and Apple has consistently defended itself and has said the accusations aren’t true. According to AllThingsD, Justice Department attorney Lawrence Buterman presented the government’s case this morning, using a slideshow filled with email and phone record evidence that the government says shows Apple colluded with book publishers to drive up the cost of e-books ahead of the launch of the iBookstore.

    For its part, Apple’s lead attorney claims the company was using the same strategies that worked when the company was amidst building the iTunes Music Store to get contracts with the major book publishers. The following was mentioned regarding the topic:
