Amazon settled the POD case because they were in the wrong on the merits.
They're not wrong on the merits here. They have a fair shot at straight dismissal because all the claims are based on *intent* to limit consumer choice whereas DRM is intended to limit piracy. (snicker)

Since they're not suing Apple or B&N or Kobo, they have to prove in court the publishers *intended* to benefit Amazon over the others, that they *intended* to give Amazon a 50% share of the ebook business.

I say: good luck with that.
