Amazon Agrees To Treat Sellers Better in Deal To Close EU Antitrust Probe πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί

There has been a final deal reached between Amazon and EU antitrust regulators! The EU originally launched a probe into Amazon’s use of data to give its own first-party products an advantage over independent third-party sellers. Under this settlement, Amazon has agreed to give competing products an equal treatment to be featured in the buy box (the box on the right-hand side of the Amazon product page used for customers to add items in their cart).

By agreeing to this settlement, Amazon avoids a large fine and formal charges for its illegal activity. I look over the details of this settlement highlighting areas of progress as well as some of the short comings I see. Did the EU really get enough out of Amazon here?
