ALA denounces Amazon, Macmillan in response to congressional inquiry on competition in digital markets

he American Library Association (ALA) publicly released a report October 24 explaining that current practices by content publishers and distributors in digital markets limit libraries’ ability to deliver core services. The report was submitted in response to an inquiry from the US House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law.
