In the prior post, I expressed some shock and amazement that Amazon would meddle with the patient-doctor relationship. See www.infogovnuggets.com/2018/12/03/these-folks-have-lost-the-plot/.
Apparently I am not alone in raising some questions about the antitrust implications of some of Amazon’s behavior. “Germany Opens Amazon Antitrust Probe, Adding to European Scrutiny,” The Wall Street Journal, November 30, 2018 (online). Is Amazon hindering other sellers on their website?
This is primarily a Compliance issue. I note, however, that the types of behavior at issue here are basic antitrust blocking and tackling. If you get to a certain size, you can no longer get away with behavior that would be acceptable by a smaller player. Sometimes this isn’t part of the Compliance education package.
