Indie booksellers sue Amazon and the Big Six over DRM

  • Three independent booksellers are looking to change the lines of engagement over e-books and DRM this week with a new lawsuit against Amazon and the Big Six publishers both. Booksellers Fiction Addiction of Greenville, S.C., Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza in Albany, and New York City’s own Posman Books filed the class action lawsuit on February 15th. In the suit, which is posted in its entirety (DRM free, of course) on the Huffington Post, the stores claim they are filing the complaint “on behalf of themselves and all other similarly situated brick and mortar bookstores.” Why these three stores in particular are filing the suit together is as yet unclear, though the fact that they are doing so outside the umbrella of the American Booksellers Association is notable.
