Online booksellers square off

Published on .

Barnes & Noble has filed suit against rival Web bookseller Amazon.com for what it calls "fraudulent claims" by Amazon that it's the world's largest online bookstore. News of the lawsuit appeared in a May 13 Wall Street Journal article, the day after Barnes & Noble hosted a fete at a landmark Manhattan library to celebrate the launch of its Web site. Neither company could be reached for comment on Tuesday.
