The retailer is also being boycotted by a handful of Japanese publishers who disagree with Amazon offering a rewards program to students. The retailer gives students 10% of a book's price as points, which can be used to buy more books.

Businesses are out to make money and not friends, but Amazon sure is a lightning rod for conflicts, isn't it?
Google or Bing: internet reputation management. There are many legitimate companies that help people from all walks of life get their good names back via a variety of legitimate methods.
