France Investigating Amazon's DVD Sales Practices

from the for-what? dept

In a fairly cryptic note, Amazon has admitted that they’re being investigated in France for their DVD sales practices. That seems a little strange, but this other article suggests that Amazon’s warehouses were actually raided in search of illegal DVDs. Amazon, of course, isn’t known for selling bootlegs, so chances are its a situation similar to the case in the UK where Amazon was investigated for daring to buy cheaper (but perfectly legal) CDs overseas and sell them in Europe. Apparently, the French also like to keep their media prices artificially high.
