Over the next few days, there will be a lot of discussion about lessons learned, what happens from here and when consumers will see credits from their ebook retailers. Apple’s damages are over double the damages paid by the Big 5 publishers and released back in 2014, so it should be interesting.

I, for one, am glad that it’s over. How about you?
