pageoneresults, your conspiracy theory is not that far off. We've been threatened that we would lose the product if we dont meet MAP. When I point out Amazon is WAY below MAP nothing is said. One product in particular I even was threatened by a lawyer saying we were violating copyright law because we use their product image and told us we were illegally selling their product. When I pointed out to this attorney that we received their product images from them with a consent to use them and we were listed on their site as an authorize retailer this attorney then said we would be removed due to MAP violations. When I pointed out Amazon was till violating they informed me that Amazon has a negotiated contract with them. How is that legal to tell small companies that we have to sell for #*$! but amazon is fine to sell for ZZZ? Anyway, im done with that product and am much happier now!
