    For companies like this when they get caught the fine should be what they made on profits from the illegal act plus a fine.

      That’s how it usually works for other money you got while committing a crime. You lose all of it

      When you’re not a company anyways

      The FTC can fine them and I believe just about everyone who used Amazon during this time period could join a class action lawsuit.

      Amazon ditched binding arbitration recently, so I think they probably will end up with a huge lawsuit.

    guy is such a fucking ghoul. he’s siphoned BILLIONS of dollars, HUGELY profitable, but he’s still looking for ways to take more. I would care a lot less if that money was seeing it’s way to employees, but it’s not.
