Legal Action?

From the Publishers Marketplace website:

Organizations are lining up to complain about Amazon's recent move to require POD publishers to use Booksurge if they want their product sold directly by the e-tailer as in-stock merchandise.

The Authors Guild says in a statement "we're reviewing the antitrust and other legal implications of Amazon's bold move." And the ASJA (American Society of Journalists and Authors) says it "will urge the Washington state attorney general's office to investigate whether Amazon's move constitutes restraint of trade or otherwise violates anti-trust laws."
