(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - When Amazon wants to fight, it turns to a familiar playbook.

The latest to feel the Seattle retailer's sting is Disney.

Amazon is now refusing to accept pre-orders for Disney DVD and Blu-ray titles, costing the company millions of dollars.

You can still pre-order digital versions.

Amazon is in contract negotiations with Disney. This is the same tactic Amazon is using in its 4-month battle with a book group over e-book pricing.

In that battle some 900 authors have signed their names to a letter criticizing Amazon for its tactics.
