Request for Canadian section[edit]

the call for "Amazon.ca" redirects to "Amazon.com" but this article has no content on the legal differences. Does the cmapny only exist n the USA and merely ship to Canada? Or does it also have a physical legal presence in Canada? 13:49, 9 August 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.30.122.246 (talk)

Suggest move[edit]

I would suggest moving the article to Amazon (online retailer) to represent a worldwide view on the topic. Also I have noticed that Amazon have dropped the .com suffix in their logo on their American website and refer to themselves as Amazon on information pages e.g. Amazon and Our Planet. Within the English Speaking World Amazon also trades in Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. On those websites Amazon uses the local web suffix in the logos. I do not know what Canadians or Australians call it but in the UK most people just call it Amazon. I remember Americans calling it Amazon.com but in a video about the Kindle a US commentator said he was asked if it was that Amazon thing. That might suggest that at least some Americans moved on but I cannot be absolutely sure. Tk420 (talk) 20:20, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Strongly disagree. Current front page still uses Amazon.com at least six times, including twice in the footer, once as a graphic logo and once again as text. And their Investor Relations section of their site repeatedly refers to the company as Amazon.com. Did you actually bother to look around their Web site before you posted that suggestion? --Coolcaesar (talk) 05:44, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

There was a similar move request only six months or so ago, and the clear consensus appears to have been against any such move. Did you check the archives on this talk page before initiating this discussion? Consensus can change over time, but usually we try to give it a bit more breathing room than this. Usually it's better not to have the same discussion again in such a short time, forcing everyone to repeat their earlier input, unless you believe that there were significant issues missed in the earlier discussion. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 14:33, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
