I take it you are an expert on commerce law? I'd like to see how you came to your bizarre conclusion that a business can freely discriminate on how it sells its product to customers. There are numerous commerce laws that specifically were enacted to prevent this.

This vague reference to "law" has nothing to do with how any manufacturer distributes their product

There is an applicable law actually... I seem to recall that Thom Hogan even referenced it when he wrote recently about the D800 supply issues and his thoughts on pre-orders?

I believe that Nikon is sending a few units every week to each retailer. By law, they can't just send 100's to B&H in one shipment and 1 to Joe's Camera Shop, provided the Joe's credit is good.

Exactly what "law" is that?

Seems to me that a manufacturer can send whatever it wants to whomever it wants, aside from damaging relations, there is no "law" that prevents this.
