German Publishers Seek Amazon Inquiry
Posted in: Government & Policy at 25/06/2014 18:00
German book publishers have filed a complaint with the country's antitrust authority against Amazon, accusing it of violating competition laws and asking the government to investigate.
The complaint, filed last week, was announced on Tuesday, nearly two months after Amazon began delaying shipments of books from Bonnier, a leading publishing group in Germany, in a dispute over dividing revenue from sales of electronic books. Amazon, the online retailer, is in a similar struggle with Hachette in the United States.
