The Department of Justice's suit against Apple and five of the vaunted Big Six trade book publishers over the machinations used to arrive at the "agency model" sent shockwaves through the publishing world.
What does the case mean? What is the way forward for publishers?
In an exclusive on-demand session at the Sept. 13 Publishing Business Virtual Conference, an expert panel will answer these questions and more.
Attorney Molly Boast, now a partner at WilmerHale, worked on the suit while she was with the DOJ. She will explain the grounds of the government's complaint and the partial settlement it reached with Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster.
Marcelino Elosua, Founder and CEO of LID Publishing, will discuss the way forward for publishers in the wake of the pending decision.
