The Justice Department says it is conducting an antitrust investigation to determine if there’s collusion between book publishers and Apple (AAPL) in the pricing of e-books. Yesterday, EU officials said they are probing Apple and other publishers to determine if they illegally raised prices for e-books when the iPad was introduced in the spring of 2010.

    While they're at it, perhaps they could investigate collusion in the financial sector.

    This is beyond asinine. Apple's contract clearly states that publishers can only offer books on iBooks at the lowest price they sell them anywhere.

    Proof positive we need to repeal these "anti-trust" laws.
