Antitrust Suit Aimed At Amazon, Borders Books
from the say-what? dept
This has to be a case of someone suing for the sake of suing. It seems that a California consumer is so upset that Amazon is now powering Borders Books’ website that he’s suing them for antitrust violations. This is ridiculous on many levels. The simple fact that there are tons of other bookstores (both small and large) online should be evidence enough that this is a waste of time. Plus, if anything, Amazon has continued to lower their prices (such as by offering free shipping) as they compete with other booksellers – not exactly the standard practice of a monopolist.
