There is the chance that this would erode Amazons grip too.

At the moment, Amazon is big enough to ignore Google, but other producers are not.

Cracking Googles stranglehold, may add some benefit to Amazon, but they've been big enough to not be particularly intimidated by Google for some time before bring out their pad, so it's not a sudden release of potential handcuffs for them at all.

Smaller entities are much more shackled by the current status quo.
