Is Amazon evil?

The current raft of issues: Is Amazon a monopoly? (Probably not). Is it fixing to become one using a loss leader strategy? Is it strong-arming its suppliers to that end? (Hmmm). What are the implications of the Amazon versus Hachette dispute for writers, readers and publishers? I’m not going to be following this one too closely here beyond some basic tracking. With that in mind: at The Digital Reader Nate Hoffelder provides a good round up of the current state of the argument. The piece has a clear and unapologetic slant, but follow the links and make up your own mind.
