Parler Sues Amazon for Pulling it from Its Web Hosting Services

In a statement released late Monday, Matze added, "I founded Parler to be a place of open dialogue and discussion where we could work to move past the anger and hostility that seems to be consuming our otherwise civil society" and said that "we do not condone or accept violence on our platform and we never will".
In its suit, Parler accused Amazon of violating antitrust law and said the tech giant breached a contract, among other allegations.
Messages of support for Wednesday's attack in Washington DC - along with calls for more demonstrations - had flourished on the platform, leading Google to also remove it from its app store later that day, followed by Apple on Saturday.
The lawsuit comes amid a wave of action by online giants cutting off access to supporters of President Donald Trump in the wake of last week's US Capitol riots and purported plans for new violent demonstrations. Google and Apple also made a decision to remove Parler from their app stores, just days after the app received an influx of users following Twitter'sban on President Donald Trump and other conservative accounts. Parler hit back with a lawsuit the same day.
According to an email by an AWS Trust and Safety team to Parler, seen by Reuters, Amazon suspended Parler from its Amazon Web Services (AWS) unit, for violating AWS's terms of services by failing to effectively deal with a steady increase in violent content.
Parler's choice of attorney in the case is something of an enigma. Amazon declined to provide additional comment.
Parler said that it is unable to simply switch to a rival cloud computing platform, such as Microsoft Azure, since it relies on Amazon's Application Programming Interface and other underlying code to operate. All three companies claimed Parler did not sufficiently moderate content posted to its platform. Such content was not removed by Parler. "Parler will be severely damaged financially and reputationally if it must go offline Sunday at midnight because AWS terminates Parler's account".
By November a year ago, though, Amazon's cloud-computing division had received reports of harmful content posted on Parler.
"We are clearly being singled out", Amy Peikoff, Parler's chief policy officer, also said via Fox Business.
Violent content only grew after the January 6 insurrection, according to Amazon's response.
Parler's previous domain name registrar was DreamHost, who, similar to Amazon, cut ties with the company this week.
"Compelling AWS to host content that plans, encourages, and incites violence would be unprecedented", Doran and Wickers wrote in their response. "Parler has no likelihood of prevailing on the merits, and the balance of equities and public interest strongly tip against an injunction".
Parler pitches itself as a neutral platform in favour of free speech as enshrined in the American constitution, with no restrictions whatsoever.
