Lawsuits are a growing  byproduct of the not so subtle panic the publishing world seems to be engaged in.  The basket has been upended, people, and everyone is scrambling to recover the contents.

Some may call this an era of evolution in book publishing, but it also could be called the Era of Major Lawsuits taking on golliaths, such as Google … and now Apple and five major publishers: HarperCollins Publishers, Hachette Book Group, Macmillan Publishers, Penguin Group Inc. and Simon & Schuster Inc.

The issue at the center of the lawsuit against Apple and the five publishers is one that has plagued virtually every crevice of the industry: e-book pricing.
