I agree that Amazon is NOT the bad guy here. But I find your comment about Amazon offering "great products" in the eBook market a bit puzzling. Why? I own a Kindle and I own an iPad. To compare the two products would be analogous to comparing an adding machine to a calculator: they both will do math functions, but they are nothing alike (BTW I use both of them, I am not knocking the Kindle, just staing my opinion about it being a "great product"). My point is that the marketplace/consumers will make their choices and sort this out without Government Intervention.

Whereas, I had nothing but great customer service from Amazon when my first Kindle failed after more than 2 years of hard use. They first attempted to restore it by troubleshooting it over the phone and then promptly issued a return authorization, credited my account with a more than fair used value and sent me a new one immediately. I was without a physical Kindle for about 3 days, but was able to continue reading my Kindle books on-line while I waited. I also read hard copy books but I buy them used at library books sales.

I have never bought anything from Amazon. I don't like Kindle. I have a Nook Color -- primarily because if I have an issue, I can take it to my B & N Store that is less than 5 minutes from my house and they will service it, check it out, and help me with it. If I were to have a problem with the Kindle...I am talking to someone on the phone who can't see my equipment and who doesn't have any real reason to give me good customer services. Barns and Noble does...I have a Nook, my husband has a Nook, all three of my older kids want Nooks...and we still buy hardcover books when the new books come out.

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.
