Submission + - Amazon vs. Music Industrie (heise.de)

gerddie writes: Heise reports (in German), that Amazon (German) flexed it's muscles over a dispute with the music industry. Labels like SonyBMG, Warner Music, Universal Music and EMI admonished Amazon for selling import-CD that are cheaper then European releases. Amazon showed its market power by not only removing the disputed CDs from the shop, but also a lot of EU-releases of these companies. For a few days, nearly all top-100 titles of SonyBMG and Warner, and many CDs of Universal and EMI were not available at Amazon, the strongest online-seller in Germany.
After talks, the European releases of the CDs are available again and the disputed imports are not. However, the issue is not yet settled, commented one of the music industry managers to Spiegel Online. Amazon gave "no comment".
