Amazon limine tous les rnovateurs Apple non autoriss de son march en ligne, dans le cadre d'un nouvel accord commercial avec Apple

An agreement has just been signed between two technology gloves that allows Amazon, the world's largest e-commerce company to distribute Apple's products. The Apple products concerned by this agreement are: iPad Pro, iPhone XR, iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4, as well as the Apple range of Beats. Amazon will be able to sell these products, according to the agreement that will come into effect in the coming weeks, in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and India.Some Apple products are dj sold on the Amazon site so far, but these come from third-party vendors such as John Bumstead, an Apple product reconditioner who brings back thousands of MacBooks and MacBooks Pro destined in principle to be destroyed, it buys from small electronics recyclers. It re-arranges them and resells them on Amazon or wholesale suppliers of used materials. But under the new contract with Apple, non-authorized resellers like Bumstead and other small resellers, having no link with Amazon, will not be able to sell anymore. on the largest online market in the world. Indeed, in an email addressed by Bumstead by Amazon, only authorized resellers will be able to sell, now Apple products on the electronic platform of Amazon from January 4, 2019. At this date, non-aggression resellers are summons to withdraw. As part of a new agreement with Apple, we are working with a group of licensed resellers to offer a wider range of Apple and Beats products, including new versions, in Amazon stores, the e-mail says. You receive this message because you are selling or have already sold Apple or Beats products. Your existing offers for these products will soon be removed from the Amazon online store in the United States. Please contact Apple if you would like to apply to become an Amazon Reseller. According to the contract, Amazon has to sell new Apple products with authorized resellers whose criteria are not stopped by Apple. This allows Apple to take a stronger stand against the independent repair of these products. Indeed, the maintenance and repair of the products of the manufacturer are in stores agres by Apple. In addition, the latest iMac Pro and MacBook Pro 2018 released in July are dots new Apple proprietary software that prevents any repair by independent workshops.
Amazon is the best selling platform compared to other markets like eBay and Craigslist, according to resellers whose products are sold on Amazon currently. According to Bumstead, thanks to its popularity with customers and centralized shipping services, Amazon has facilitated the reseller business and has become the first place where consumers think they are buying things online. However, this contract with Apple comes to end the activity. of all these small dealers. That's what all Amazon salespeople dreaded, Bumstead Motherboard said. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of small businesses doing repairs and renovations, so they are going to suffer the biggest blow. Criteria for authorized resellers on Amazon are not yet known, according to Motherboard, however, it is already known that the manufacturer is very demanding in its restrictions imposed its service providers autor.Aaron Perzanowski, Law Professor Case Western Reserve University and co-author of The End of Ownership, Motherboard said in an e-mail that the decision to stop resellers is a dangerous attack on property rights. This is a very disturbing development, he said. Given Amazon's dominance as an online retail market, its decision to deny the rights of first-time resellers will severely limit consumer choice. The fact that this agreement was requested by Apple, makes it even more problematic. What we are witnessing is the two most important companies in the world that are embarking on a coordinated attack against the legal resale of consumer devices. According to Professor Perzanowski, the Supreme Court of the United States decided, under the doctrine of the first sale, that persons who also own a product may also resell it, and the federal law protect this right. The doctrine of the first sale has never required an owner to obtain permission to sell his property, added Perzanowski. But Amazon uses its power in its market to give Apple a power that courts and the Congress never gave and would never want. Kyle Wiens, DiFixit CEO, told Motherboard that these iPhone spares were very often removed from the Amazon site and then put back on sale after a long process of conflict with Amazon. Lide that you have a retailer who, if he can, makes an agreement with the most profitable company in the world and excludes independent resellers, is a concern for the future of trade, said Wiens. It's a bit odd to think that a brand would be able to restrict the sale of usags. This is exactly the kind of control that Apple wants to exert on the market. This Apple contract with Amazon clearly signals the end of the activities of the companies that sell the Apple devices they repair because maintenance and independent repairs are made difficult with the recent computers with an integrated software removal switch. In addition, Amazon's current certified reconditioning program, which may not be affected by the contract with Apple, especially the requirements for the sale of Apple products under this program will not be accessible by small resellers. Who can meet these requirements, with the exception of the top five largest companies that Apple has decided to work with? , Said Bumstead.Source: MotherboardAnd you?
