People are getting emails from Amazon about free money this morning.
What’s up with that?
If you’ve bought an e-book from Amazon, then you may be entitled to some cash as a result of a settlement.
The money is a result of a settlement between publishers and the Department of Justice.
Publishers were accused of conspiring with Apple to raise the prices of e-books. Apple is still fighting the charges.
But publishers settled and as a result, the money is getting passed on to you.
Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.
