Amazon’s response Friday came more than two months after the federal agency — joined by 17 states — filed the historic complaint against the Seattle-based company.

In its 31-page filing in a federal court in Washington state, Amazon argues that the conduct cited by the FTC as anti-competitive consists of common retail practices that benefit consumers.
