MobyLives reports that the Independent Online Booksellers Association has contacted the European Union to complain about a new Amazon policy:

“In this latest policy change, Amazon have contacted independent sellers using their UK, French and German websites and said that any items they have for sale on Amazon must be sold at the same price or cheaper on Amazon than they are sold on any other website including booksellers’ own websites. This policy change has been backed up with a threat to ban any seller who fails to comply from selling on Amazon’s sites.”

European used booksellers have been accusing Amazon of bullying techniques for some time now.
