I expect a few lawyers at amazon are pulling all-nighters until it is sorted.

but will it make any noticeable blip in kindle sales & profits? I doubt it. most people are well indoctrinated with the " its cheaper at Amazon" mantra and do not stop to check before each new purchase
its not like there's a pop up in the Kindle store saying price alert - this is now 20% cheaper down the road.
and if you have a kindle reader, and don't subscribe to this forum to stay clued up on how to convert... where else are you going to shop for compatible books anyway

I don't even know of any price app that tracks book prices across retailers, yes there are some that tell you about amazon price drops, but none I know of that cater for today's situation

has anyone checked out he prices at Kobo UK, are they on the ball or sleepwalking through an opportunity ?
