If anyone was in any doubt that the e-book pricing anti-trust lawsuit was a case of capture of the legal system by Amazon, here’s the proof. Normally when there’s a class action lawsuit, the courts collect the money and parcel it out to the victims. Not in this case. The publishers who have agreed not to contest the case (Hachette, HarperCollins, and Simon and Schuster) are paying out, but that money goes to Amazon, and the only way that the supposed victims of the crime can use their money is by buying something from Amazon. Sure its convenient, but it doesn’t look good at all.
