Apple targeted in antitrust lawsuit

The U.S. government has filed an antitrust lawsuit in New York against Apple Inc. and various major book publishers. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan. It claims the publishers conspired with Apple to raise retail electronic-book prices to limit competition.

Apple did not immediately respond to a comment request.
