Apple is disputing the interference of the U.S. Justice Department in a copyright suit against software maker Corellium as questions arise as to why the federal government is now involved in the case.

It argues that it gave publishers the opportunity to set their own prices, and that it cannot be blamed for e-book price hikes.
