amazon304Amazon has issued credits to customers who purchased eBooks from select publishers, as a response to the eBook price fixing case.

The online retailer sent out emails to customers this morning. “The credit results from legal settlements reached with publishers Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Penguin in antitrust lawsuits filed by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of eBooks,” explains the email.

The company has added the credits to customer’s accounts automatically and the credit will be applied to a customer’s next book purchase.
