[ATTACH=RIGHT]16365[/ATTACH]Richard Blumenthal, Attorney General of Connecticut, warned Amazon and Apple yesterday that he wants to have a little talk with them about their "anticompetitive" deals in the electronic publishing market. In [URL="http://www.ct.gov/ag/lib/ag/consumers/amazonltr080110.pdf"]his letter[/URL], directed to Amazon's General Counsel, L. Michelle Wilson, Blumental warns that "Amazon's demand that the largest e-book publishers agree to provide Amazon with a 'guarantee' that no other competitor will obtain lower prices" is of concern due to its anticimpettive impact. Such price guarantees are sometimes referred to [URL="http://www.answers.com/topic/most-favored-nation"]"most favored nation" (MFN) clauses[/URL].
