The EU is set to accept an e-book settlement offer from Apple (AAPL) and four book publishers (including NWS' HarperCollins), Reuters reports. Much like a U.S. settlement that was recently cleared, the deal will allow Amazon (AMZN) and other e-book sellers to set their own prices - in Amazon's case, that often means selling e-books at a loss. Pearson (PSO), also part of the EU's investigation, isn't part of the settlement deal. Apple is still at odds with the DOJ.
