Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) Apple is due to go to court today over allegations that it conspired with five publishers to raise e-book prices. Apple is facing the suit alone after the publishers involved settled with the Justice Department. 2) Apple reportedly signed a licensing deal with Warner Music over the weekend as it looks to launch a music-streaming service at its developer conference next week. Apple still needs to finalize agreements with Universal Music and Sony (SNE). 3) Google (GOOG) is set to seize Apple's crown for mobile apps in the next few months. While Apple downloads tops those of Android by 50B to 48B, the monthly rate is 2.5B vs 2B in Android's favor.

  • Studies show that Apple apps are used more and Androids, once downloaded are rarely used except for a few big ones.

  • Actually, AAPL already signed with Universal, so it's two down and one to go on iRadio, with Sony left. The Warner deal is significant in that it covers publishing and recorded music in one agreement. AAPL does need to finalize other publishing deals, but the songwriters tend to follow the record labels (given that the big three music companies own the big three publishers), so if AAPL gets Sony done on the recorded music side, it may go ahead and announce the forthcoming service at WWDC.
