Reuters reports that Amazon said yesterday that its CEO-founder, Jeff Bezos, is willing to testify to the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee regarding antitrust allegations against the company, specifically how it deals with third-party vendors.
Details have to be worked out, such as timing, the production of documents (Amazon says it already has provided more than 225,000 pages of documents without getting a binding commitment of confidentiality from the committee), and whether other CEOs (from Google, Apple and Facebook) will appear at the same time.
Still, the story says, this would be Bezos' first time testifying before Congress.
