+ - The Steve Jobs video that sealed Apple's fate in the DOJ case->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Apple yesterday came up on the losing end of a decision from US District Judge Denise Cote who ruled that Apple did, in fact, collude to artificially raise the price of e-books.

In looking over the decision, I found it interesting that statements made by Steve Jobs were construed as compelling evidence in the eyes of Cote.

The damning video, which was shot by Kara Swisher on her Flipcam, shows Mossberg curiously asking Jobs why someone would buy an e-book for $14.99 from Apple when they can get it for $9.99 from Amazon.

"The prices will be the same," Jobs explained, before adding that "publishers are actually withholding" books from Amazon because they aren't happy with the terms of their contract."
