GOP memo defends tech against antitrust

"I have reached the conclusion we do not need to change our antitrust laws,” Sensenbrenner told the committee. He subsequently asked Amazon's Bezos to speculate on what might happen if the federal government ordered his company to break into smaller components, saying, "You might have to go to separate places for books or groceries or videos or electronics. How are the consumers helped by that?" Bezos agreed: "They would not be."
