Amazon behaving like a Maleficent

by Rachel Baker on August 10, 2014

This seems sort of like its getting a little bit out of control.

Amazon is bumping chests yet again with a media giant, this time its the House that Mickey built. At issue is contract terms for selling some of Disney’s biggest DVD/Blu Ray titles on its site — Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Maleficent, Muppets Most Wanted and Million Dollar Arm. MaleficentThe titles are finding their way into other retail stores such as Best Buy and Target via DVD and Blu-Ray, but they are not allowed to be sold on Amazon. Discussions will be continuing between Amazon and Disney throughout the week to try to resolve the pricing issue.

This comes as an ad signed by 900 authors across the country was set to appear in the pages of the The New York Times today protesting Amazon’s treatment of publisher Hachette which has also been in a pricing dispute with the retail giant.
