This is how is looks to me, peering through the murk. Apple has fans in Washington, but Monsanto has allies, and those allies have arranged to hustle Monsanto out of the news as quickly as possible after March 25th and the March Against Monsanto, in no small part by setting Apple up for public chastisement. What better distraction than to put the company responsible for the iPhone and iPad on trial for conspiracy to inflate the prices of electronically delivered books? What convenient timing! GMOs, monopolization of seed supplies? Pishposh, nothing happening there, go sling mud at Apple instead.
