I think they want to bring competition back to the market.
It's a disappointing idea that Apple may be involved in this. They make tons of profit, so why would they become so mean? Is it the fate of all rich business thinking that it leans towards meanness?
I hate the idea they may have ripped me off on my e-book purchases.
