Apple iBooks has today come under scrutiny by the US Department of Justice for reportedly setting price fixing the sale of eBooks, to which during their trail they told the court it now owns a 20 percent share of the eBook market.

The stated the following in the case, “Apple forgot to focus on customers, that’s why the iBookstore is a failure,” which doesn’t seem exactly true as shortly after that statement, Apple said that their sales has increased by around 100%, with 100 million customers purchasing books from the store, I wouldn’t say it’s exactly a “failure”.

The company was reported to have held around a 10% share of the eBook market in previous predictions, but it now seems those rumors where wrong.
