Vive L' Amazon!

Every time I begin to like the French, (i.e., an American-friendly PM who dates super models), I am quickly reminded why I dislike their culture so:

France's highest court has ruled that Amazon.com may no longer offer free delivery of books in that country. The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by the French Booksellers' Union. The price of books is highly regulated in France, and booksellers may not discount books more than 5 percent of the publisher's suggested price.
