Independent booksellers sue Amazon and the big six publishers over ebooks

"In a case of David against Goliath, three independent US bookshops are taking on Amazon and six of the biggest publishers in America in a class-action lawsuit accusing the internet giant of creating an ebook monopoly that is destroying other booksellers."

What do we all think about this? Are Amazon creating an industry-eating monopoly, or are they are a force for progress? Personally I don't think it's as black and white as that, but I can empathise with the bookstores who are being destroyed by Amazon's success.
