Apple Inc. (AAPL) said in a court filing that the U.S. government's lawsuit against the company concerning e-book pricing is "fundamentally flawed," Reuters reported Wednesday.

Last month, the government sued Apple and five e-book publishers, alleging they conspired to raise prices and block Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) from selling e-books at $9.99. Three publishers settled the suit. Macmillan, a unit of Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH (VGH.YY), and Pearson PLC's (PSON.LN) Penguin Group declined to join the settlement.

Apple said in the filing that the government incorrectly characterized a comment about the e-book market attributed to Steve Jobs, Reuters reported.

The company said: "Apple's entry into e-book distribution is classic procompetitive conduct," Reuters reported.
