Amazon hit with $1bn claim that secretive Buy Box algorithm screws shoppers

This class-action complaint was brought by consumer-rights warrior Julie Hunter against the e-commerce goliath to the UK's Competition Appeal Tribunal, a specialist court that handles gripes of monopoly abuse and whatnot.

Hunter slammed the e-commerce goliath for using what she called a "secretive and self-favoring algorithm" that ensures shoppers buy stuff primarily from Amazon and select third-party sellers, which unfairly shuts out competitors and squashes competition. She argues that tens of millions of Brits are owed compensation for being potentially forced to pay inflated prices for goods forced onto them, and she intends to secure that windfall by appealing to the tribunal.

3) There has been no "threat" to invade Ukraine. The US invented that and fed it to a complicit media.

Amazon are abusive to their sellers.

Excellent. There is a similar case going on in the UK, it was in the papers this weekend.

Its long overdue.
