Maine Publisher Sues Amazon.com 

Angela Adair-Hoy alleges that Amazon’s recent announcement to exclusively use one on-demand publisher violates antitrust law.

Adair-Hoy said about half of her Bangor-based BookLocker.com’s sales are through Amazon and that there are about 4,300 potential print-on-demand class members. The suit seeks class-action status, an injunction preventing Amazon from implementing the new policy and monetary damages.

Amazon.com spokeswoman Patty Smith said Wednesday the company does not comment on active litigation. Smith also forwarded an open letter from the company that cites speed, efficiency and customer service as reasons for its policy.
