New front in Amazon kerfuffle: Warner movies

By Brian Stelter, CNN Senior Media Correspondent

Hachette books aren't the only products that are now harder to order on Amazon - the online retailer is going after movies, too.

Amazon (AMZNTech30) has turned off the preorder function for DVDs of prominent Warner Bros. films as it seeks to raise pressure on the company during negotiations.
