New York AG sues Amazon for putting 'profit over people' when it comes to COVID-19

A couple of months ago the literary estate of Iain M Banks announced their decision not to continue with the Amazon-funded television adaptation of Consider Phlebas, after a couple of years of development by director Dennis Kelly ('Utopia' - deep, humorous, uniquely styled, possibly too violent for some).

At the time I'd assumed it was perhaps the estate had reservations over the treatment of Bank's book. Now though, it seems plausible that they feel that Bank's values are at odds with Amazon's practices.

Just a thought.
