Warner Bros. is going after Amazon.com’s resellers market. The studio’s home entertainment division has filed at least 16 separate lawsuits in California against those who use the e-vendor to sell discounted DVDs ranging from Harry Potter films to many HBO shows such as Game of Thrones, The Wire, The Sopranos and Entourage. Each of the defendants is alleged to be using the Amazon’s e-commerce platform, which enables third parties to sell products on its website. According to the complaint, more than 2 million Amazon users participate in the Amazon Marketplace to offer “new, used and collectible selections at fixed prices to Amazon customers around the world.” Read the full story at Hollywood Reporter.
