US authorities and 17 states have sued Amazon, accusing it of boosting prices on other online platforms, pushing vendors to overcharge, and exploiting the company's position to hinder competition. The complaint was filed in the Western District of Washington of the United States District Court. The FTC and the states that joined the action urged the court to issue a permanent injunction preventing Amazon from engaging in illegal behavior and abolishing the monopoly. According to a lawsuit filed against the corporation, the company engages in anti-competitive actions by preventing merchants from offering lower pricing for products on non-Amazon sites.
