It may not have the twists and turns of a legal caper written by John Grisham, but this week a major trial gets underway that will reshape the publishing industry.

Penguin Random House, the country's biggest publisher, wants to acquire rival Simon & Schuster. The Biden Administration wants to stop the merger, arguing their lawsuit "will prevent further consolidation in an industry that has a history of collusion."

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Chris Sagers, professor of law at Cleveland State University.

This segment aired on August 1, 2022.
