“Amazon’s own acts, and its control over the product in question, form the basis for its liability,” the opinion reads. “Nothing aside from Amazon’s own choices required it to allow Lenoge Technology to offer its product for sale, to store Lenoge’s product at its warehouse, to accept Bolger’s order, or to ship the product to her. It made these choices for its own commercial purposes. It should share in the consequences.”  Source : Times of San Diego
