"Amazon added a badge next to products made by small-business brands and artisans in 2022, and this week it announced a new search filter to let shoppers more easily find such items.

"Amazon informed sellers of the new feature in a post on Monday, explaining that when a customer’s search results include eligible products from small-business brands, the new filter will appear under Business type in the search filter options."

When the FTC's Lina Khan opens up her laptop and goes on Amazon, this option ought to be highlighted in neon lights - because it is specifically designed to help address the FTC's antitrust concerns about the company.
