LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas' attorney general says some consumers who purchased electronic books will begin receiving account credits or checks this week after a settlement with five of the nation's largest e-book publishers.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said about $1 million will be distributed through credits or direct payments to Arkansas consumers. McDaniel has issued a consumer alert to let eligible Arkansans know about the coming restitution.

McDaniel and other state attorneys general sued five of the six largest e-book publishers in the country and Apple Inc., accusing the companies of conspiring to fix the prices of e-books. The publishers settled the claims for a nationwide total of $166 million.

The settlements followed a two-year investigation by McDaniel and the attorneys general of 30 other states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
