Amazon Settles Antitrust Lawsuit

     “We have great news and we wanted you, our authors, to be the first to know! 

      “Amazon has settled the antitrust lawsuit we filed against them.  We are not bound by an confidentialty clause (we refused to do that) and we’ve posted what happened (along with the settlement agreement itself) here http://antitrust.booklocker.com

      “You are welcome to quote from it, or publish it in its entirety, if you wish.  Please help us spread the word. 

      Thank you so much for your support!  We are certain that the media and public pressure (especially from authors!) Amazon experienced played a part in their decision to finally rescind their ridiculous policy.

    Amazon’s business practices are offensive. The recent lawsuit against Amazon will once again bring that to light.

  3. Subject: AMAZON WITHHELD FUNDS/SUSPENDED ACCOUNTS, LAWSUIT PENDING

    As you know, our lawsuit against Amazon is still pending in federal court
    (link:
    http://dockets.justia.com/docket/florida/flsdce/1:2010cv20718/353407/ ).
    The trial is scheduled for June and we are fully committed to seeing this case through and to holding Amazon accountable for its fraudulent business practices. Many of you have already agreed to testify at our trial, and we appreciate your willingness to take a stand against Amazon!

    In addition to taking a stand in court, you can participate and make a real difference by filing complaints with the Better Business Bureau and your local DA’s office, by writing letters to Amazon’s executives, and by posting your
    stories online (e.g., YouTube, MySpace, etc.). Together we can force Amazon to change the way it does business.

    Please email alby1969_98@yahoo.com if you have any questions about this case. Also, if you intend to testify at our trial, please provide us with your full names and contact information. You will NOT be contacted by Amazon’s counsel directly, but may be contacted through us prior to the trial.
    Thank You!
