DOJ Sues Apple and Publishers for Collusion
Posted 19 September 2012 - 07:21 AM
This article is a little short on detail and has at least one inaccuracy (the settlement that some of the publishers accepted in the US is not the same as dumping the agency model) but still worth a read if this topic is of interest to you. I'm still hoping the DOJ forces them to dump the agency model completely and go back to a wholesale model so my e-book prices return to pre-iPad levels!

Another may be that it benefits B&N. I'm pretty sure they preferred the agency model, since they're still the largest brick and mortar bookseller in the US. They operate about 700 B&N retail stores and 600 college bookstores.
