Amazon has been in talks with various television networks, movie studios and other media entities about providing content to the site, according to the Monday report.

Supreme Court Denial Closes Apple's E-Book Case


The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied without comment Apple’s petition for a review of a lower court ruling that it engaged in price-fixing of e-books. The company must comply with a $450 million settlement it reached with 33 states and territories and a private class of e-book purchasers that, together with the U.S. Department of Justice, sued it over the issue. However, e-book purchasers who were overcharged won’t get their hands on any of the $450 million — most of them would be reimbursed through automatic credits at e-book retailers.
