Even as we exit the recent debacle of Google Books (Google lost that lawsuit)- you’d think that the other power players, and specifically Amazon would be a little bothered or scared.  Nah, not even close.

Check out the Amazon chart below. As Amazon continues to steal market share from retailers — Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Best Buy are immediate U.S. targets — Morgan Stanley Analyst Scott Devitt thinks it can reach $100 billion in revenue by 2015. That’s more than double the $45 billion in sales that the Street expects from Amazon this year.
