Re: Price fixing is illegal, isn't it?

I mentioned this Dell price to my local Sony rep. He said Sony corporate was well aware of it and working with Dell on the issue. The A6000 is price fixed. It sells at MSRP from all vendors worldwide. He said that no one should be selling it for less than MSRP. He said corporate was dealing with Dell.

In Canada, Calgary's The Camera Store it's usually about $30 cheaper than list. Been that way for years. Aden Camera in Toronto followed suit. Henrys across Canada matches it when pointed out.

So, when you say "fixed" is there a contract that the store owner must sign, in order to be supplied with stock, and that states that they shall not sell at anything other than MSRP? Wouldn't that be illegal?

Henry's once told me that they DO NOT price match. Maybe it was just that one sales rep.
