Jeff Bezos called to testify over Amazon allegedly misusing data

Jeff Bezos is asked to appear before the House Judiciary Committee as his company Amazon is alleged of using data from third-party sellers to develop and sell its own products. According to the Wall Street Journal report, the data that Amazon collected helped the company set pricing, determine features to be incorporated as well as decide on entry into a particular product category.

This isn't illegal. Anyone can do this with market monitoring and a little research. If the company had a non compete sales contract there might be grounds but if they go after Amazon for this they have to go Best buy for having store brand electronics and walmart and kmart and sears for clothes and tools. This isn't unique and looking at what you are selling and making your own version is only illegal if it has a patent or non compete contract.
