It would appear that a few people are less than happy with Amazon’s attempt to purchase the .Book domain names, as complaints have now been files by the Authors Guild and Association of American Publishers against Amazon.
The companies have said that ‘placing such generic domains in private hands is plainly anticompetitive”, and are worried that it would allow “already dominant, well-capitalized companies” to abuse market power.’
Barnes & Noble have also filed a complaint against Amazon related to the purchase of the .Book domain names, and have said that Amazon would use the domain names to stifle competition, it will be interesting to see if the complaints are taken seriously or if Amazon will get control of all the .Book domain names.
