WSJ: Amazon Scooped Up Data From Its Own Sellers to Launch Competing Products

I believe this was first published a couple years ago in Duh Magazine. “In one instance, Amazon employees accessed documents and data about a bestselling car-trunk organizer sold by a third-party vendor. The information included total sales, how much the vendor paid Amazon for marketing and shipping, and how much Amazon made on each sale. Amazon’s private-label arm later introduced its own car-trunk organizers.”
