Actually -

I think I reported it back in May but I may be wrong. :)

Don't know where I got it from, but I've got the first /12 labeled "Amazon Technologies" and the second /12 as "Amazon Web Services". fwiw.

Does the rest of 54 still belong to Merck?

Hm. If you own stock in a company and you notice they're subletting IP ranges, is that a "sell right now!" flag? ;)

There's a really amazing haha lot of IPs with some kind of Amazon connection. At various times in the past I've flagged
174.129 (including ia_archiver)

Can't remember what it was about Netcraft that offended me, but the name shows up a lot in connection with AWS. Maybe it's time to recheck them all.

There's also (Amazon-Japan) (the actual Amazon, I think) (ditto)
I've met an Amazon-Germany too, but can't find them now.
