Amazon has constantly been under scrutiny. Earlier this month, the giant e-commerce company got a lot of heat for its toxic work culture. Now the company is getting grilled for allegedly copying products by other sellers and marketing it as their own products. But they didn't stop here. Amazon also rigged search results to showcase its own products at the top instead of products that were actually popular. These practices come under unfair trade practices.
Although the company has come into trouble for their unfair practices only recently; they have been carrying these practices for ages. Amazon has often been accused of copying other products and then playing with their algorithm to show their products at the top of search results. These practices gives a bad name to a corporation already struggling with major lawsuits.
Corporations have always been accused of choosing profits over ethics and Amazon runs entirely on that agenda. For Amazon, ethics and morals have always taken a backseat when it comes to doing business. It seems that Amazon aims to monopolize over the e-commerce market and push out other competitors out of the trade. And if there's anything that we have all learnt from our past, it's that monopoly is the death of a customer's free choice.
