One would think that wanting to offer books at a LOWER price would be a good thing. Something that people would think is part of a CAPITALIST society. Silly Amazon, wanting to be competitive and offer lower-priced ebooks... And just for the record, there was already a class action lawsuit already filed in 2011 by a Seattle law firm against Apple and several publishers for collusion. Apple wanted to offer ebooks at a higher price than Amazon did and colluded with publishers to force Amazon to sell at the higher price set by Apple or not receive the ebook to sell.

And why is Apple a capitalist success story and Amazon isn't?

President Obama has a mistress. Her name is Amazon. Whereas former Presidents Kennedy and Clinton rendezvoused with female interns, Obama rendezvous with an e-commerce company.

Amazon currently monopolizes e-book sales, controlling 60 percent of the market. And, like a jealous lover, Obama is suing Amazon’s competitors in order to further strengthen her e-book monopoly. Obama may be faithful to his wife, but he is breaking his vow to the American people to defend the Constitution. He is openly abusing his executive powers and giving preferential treatment to Amazon—hoping to curry favor with consumers and ensure his reelection in November.
