Apple will appeal ruling in e-book antitrust case

NEW YORK (AP) - Apple Inc. says it plans to appeal a New York judge's ruling that found the company conspired with publishers to fix electronic book prices.

Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr says Apple didn't conspire to fix e-book pricing and would continue to fight the "false accusations." He says Apple brought much needed innovation and competition into the market in 2010.

His comments came after federal Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan ruled against Apple on Wednesday. The ruling came after Cote staged a trial in which she heard testimony from publishers, Apple and Amazon.com.

She says Apple conspired to eliminate Amazon.com's popular $9.99 price for e-books.
