FTC, 17 States File Antitrust Lawsuit Against Amazon

(Washington, DC) — Amazon is facing an antitrust lawsuit filed by the FTC and 17 states. The complaint revealed Tuesday accuses the online retail giant of abusing its powers to promote its own products over third-party sellers that use Amazon’s platform to reach customers. FTC Chair Lina Khan said, “Amazon is a monopolist, and it is exploiting its monopolies in ways that leave shoppers and sellers paying more for worse services.” Amazon responded to the lawsuit by saying it’s “wrong on the facts and the law.” The FTC has been investigating Amazon for possible antitrust violations since 2019.
