From the Wall Street Journal:
The Texas attorney general is making inquiries about the electronic book market, according to people familiar with the matter, a business where pricing recently has been shaken up by Apple Inc. and the way e-books are sold for the iPad.
Two major publishers said they have been approached by the state agency. David Young, chief executive of Lagardere SCA's Hachette Book Group, said his publishing house has been contacted by Texas officials. He declined further comment.
A spokeswoman for News Corp.'s HarperCollins Publishers said the publishing house has received a request for documents from the Texas attorney general's office, declining further comment. News Corp. owns The Wall Street Journal.
