    Why are iBooks now more expensive than Amazon? Does that have something to do with the eBook lawsuit?

    In average yes, ibook likely more expensive. But root cause will not know for sure due to amazon practice for selling at cost or at lost sometimes

    Amazon often uses whole seller pricing and Apple uses agency pricing. i.e., Amazon buys a bunch of e-books for a fixed cost and then sells them for whatever they want whether that's a profit or loss. Apple lets the publisher set the prices and takes 30% of it.
