Fair trade body clears Amazon Japan of antitrust violations after concessions
The Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) on June 1 cleared Amazon Japan GK, the Japanese branch of Seattle-based e-commerce giant Amazon.com Inc., of suspicions the firm violated antitrust laws.
The JFTC had been investigating Amazon Japan over allegations that the restrictions the firm places on sellers on its "Amazon Marketplace" e-commerce site, among other policies, constituted an antitrust violation. However, the commission stated that "suspicions of any violations have been resolved," after the company promised to renegotiate its contracts with businesses selling items through the Amazon Japan site.
