Competition Bureau reaches settlement with HarperCollins in ebooks case
“I am pleased that we were able to settle our ongoing litigation with HarperCollins. I expect that today’s consent agreement will result in greater competition in the marketplace by enabling retailers to offer discounts on ebooks, which will directly benefit Canadian consumers.”
Commissioner of Competition
The Commissioner concluded that the publishers entered into distribution agreements with individual ebook retailers that prevented them from offering discounts on ebooks.
The Commissioner is committed to promoting competition and innovation in a rapidly evolving digital economy that is redefining the way Canadians consume goods and services.
