EBooks May Be Sold More Cheaply If EU Regulators Accept Apple Offer

EU regulators are set to accept an offer by Apple and four book publishers allowing Amazon and other retailers to sell e-books more cheaply than Apple to end an antitrust investigation and avoid fines, two sources said on Monday.EBooks May Be Sold More Cheaply If EU Regulators Accept Apple Offer [reuters.com]
The move came after the EU antitrust authority opened an investigation into the companies' e-book pricing model, which critics say prevents Amazon and other retailers from undercutting Apple.

I'm hoping that, eventually, these commissions will force an end to regional pricing. Price variations by country for ebooks have no justification apart from taking advantage of monopolistic situations... I should be free to choose to buy my e-book from whatever country I want, paying no more than the locals of that country pay.
