The Digital Reader Offers Update on the Amazon Ebook Lawsuit
Nate Hoffelder writes the following for The Digital Reader:
It took 3 weeks longer than I expected, but the Big Five Publishers have been named as co-defendants in the Amazon ebook price-fixing lawsuit. …
I just read the amended complaint and there’s still no evidence of a conspiracy. The filing does say that ‘Defendants did not act unilaterally or independently’, so clearly they are claiming there was a conspiracy, but there’s still nothing to back it up. …
While I would love to see these contracts broken and real competition restored to the marketplace, I just don’t see this case going anywhere.
