Parlar suing Amazon

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Social media company Parler sued Amazon on Monday, alleging that its suspension from Amazon's hosting service violated antitrust law and breached the companies' contractual arrangement.

In its lawsuit, Parler, which is especially popular among conservatives, asked a federal judge to order that the platform be reinstated online.

The 18-page complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle, where Amazon is headquartered, accuses Amazon Web Services (AWS) of applying a politically motivated double standard to Parler in contrast to its treatment of the more mainstream social media giant Twitter.

Seems this will probably not go anywhere seeing as Parlar violated Amazons terms of service.

2. Bullshit. It'll get thrown out. Parler broke Amazon's TOS, just like Trump broke Twitter's TOS

I dare say that Republicans are pushing for communism.

4. Aren't they precious?

You can almost smell the entitlement from here.

News for the Parler execs - you violated TOS, and Amazon has waaaay more lawyers than you do.

8. Discovery should be fairly embarrassing for Parler.

Do they really want to go down this road? They probably really want a settlement, but I hope Amazon never settles this case.
