Amazon is very 'metrics-focused,' Heiss said to Amazon's vice president for Kindle Russell Grandinetti. He had previously testified that he did not know Amazon's market share of the e-books market.

Heiss then presented a news article quoting another Amazon executive estimating the company's market share at 70-80%.
