Top 10 endpoint backup mistakes

A pint-sized UK publisher is suing Amazon.com for claiming to sell its books. Liverpool-based The Toby Press is taking legal action against the online giant after it advertised Toby books on its Web site. Toby sells its books solely through its own mail order catalogue or via the Toby Press Web site. Until recently, potential customers trawling the Amazon site for Toby-published books were informed that all goods were out of stock, and were advised to try again in a few weeks. Toby Press felt this was damaging its own direct sales, according to reports. Matthew Miller, founder and MD of Toby Press, said: "We have been very frustrated in dealing with Amazon, and I regret that we have had to take this action. "We do not distribute books to book shops, Web shops or other third parties. We only sell direct on our own Web site and by mail order." All traces of Toby Press books have now been wiped from the Amazon site. Amazon declined to comment. ® Related Story Amazon sues Amazon
