French politicians take on Amazon


The parliament in France passes a law preventing Internet-based bookstores from offering free delivery to customers.

The law is a direct attempt to diminish the power of Amazon (AMZN) in the nation.

Politicians in France have plenty of support on the issue of defending the maximum-allowed discount on books.

    Hilarious. I'd love living in France, where the government institutes price controls and protectionist policies to ensure everything is incredibly expensive!
