All of us versus Amazon

Also from Publisher’s Lunch:

Douglas Preston has shown the FT a new letter being drafted on behalf of Authors United asking the Department of Justice to investigate Amazon for antitrust violations. Preston says the letter is “simply citing points of law” and tells the paper he has already been in contact with the DOJ. “They are expecting this letter and they have told me that they welcome any information we can provide.” He tells the WSJ that senior fellow at the New American Foundation Barry Lynn is actually writing the letter. “There is a case that Amazon is in violation of the law,” Lynn told the paper. “Their actions to manipulate behavior [by Hachette] are exactly the reason these laws were created.”
