Submission + - Amazon.com Suing Statsaholic

SwollUG writes: Amazon.com offers several highly innovative and useful web services (S3, EC2, and Mechanical Turk, to name a few), but do troubled waters lie ahead for users of these services? ZDNet's Alan Graham has the scoop on Tim O'Reilly's confrontation with Jeff Bezos about a lawsuit filed by Amazon's Alexa against Statsaholic, a popular web traffic comparison site built on the Alexa API. GigaOm's Om Malik has referenced this as a harbinger of the end of Web 2.0. Is this what happens when your Amazon-based website starts becoming popular? Say it ain't so, Amazon!
