A federal district court did not err in ruling that Amazon.com and its founder, Jeff Bezos, did not exceed the scope of their publishing license by failing to pay the full amount of royalties that were allegedly owed to a self-published author, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia has ruled (Carlin v. Bezos, May 23, 2016, per curiam). The judgment of the district court, which dismissed the case on summary judgment, was affirmed.
