THE US government has accused Apple and several major publishers of conspiring to fix prices of e-books and limit retail price competition, according to a lawsuit filed on Wednesday.

The publishers include Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins, MacMillan, Penguin Group, Pearson and Simon & Schuster, a unit of CBS Corp.
