They used CES as cover to coordinate on prices, HP claims

"Many defendants and co-conspirators named in this complaint have a history of engaging in anticompetitive conduct, including price-fixing conduct for electronic component parts used in computers that HP manufactured and sold, such as [DRAM], [LCD displays], and cathode ray tubes," HP wrote in its filing.

HP alleges violations by the optical disk makers of both the Sherman Antitrust Act and the Clayton Act, which regulates industry practices that may be detrimental to fair competition. Additionally, HP said the alleged price fixing also violated the California Cartwright Antitrust Act, which mirrors federal anti-competitive statutes.
