Last year Apple was found guilty of price-fixing Ebooks with five publishers, including Macmillan and Penguin. Now, it looks like a settlement has been agreed upon that will see customers who bought a price-fixed Ebook between April 1st 2010 and May 21st 2012 reimbursed with $3 credit for each Ebook purchased.

Nothing is set in stone yet, there are still a lot of details to iron out (as there always are with settlements of this type), but if the Ebook purchased made the New York Times Best Sellers List, and you bought it from Amazon, Kobo, Apple or Barnes & Noble, things are looking pretty good. If the Ebook wasn't on the NY Times Best Sellers list, you'll just get 73 cents (which is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick).

Macmillan and Penguin have already signed off on the settlement, so it's only a matter of time before the others follow suit (pun intended).
