The European Commission has accepted Amazon's changes to how it sells its e-books. Following a 2015 investigation over the retailer's anti-competitive behaviour, Amazon said back in January that it would change its ebook contracts, removing clauses that demanded the most favorable distribution deals. This encompassed release dates and promotions, in addition to the plain wholesale prices offered by publishers to Amazon. The Commission, following a period of feedback from the public and "interested parties" (so, other e-book sellers and put-upon publishers), has decided to accept Amazon's proposed clause changes, making the commitments legally binding. Amazon could be fined up to 10 percent of its annual turnover if it doesn't follow through.
