(Bloomberg) -- A battle between Amazon.com Inc. and Reliance Industries Ltd. to dominate India’s $1 trillion consumer market is stoking nationalist rhetoric in a courtroom and outside, as the two companies tussle over the future of a distressed local retailer.At the center of the case is Amazon’s efforts to block Reliance’s planned purchase of Future Group’s assets, saying the Indian retailer violated a contract by agreeing to a sale to a rival controlled by billionaire Mukesh Ambani. The Delhi High Court is now weighing if the U.S. e-commerce giant has any legal basis to object to the transaction and a ruling is expected in weeks.The legal spat has not only revealed the intensity of the fight between two of the world’s richest men -- Jeff Bezos and Ambani -- but has also sparked a “foreign versus local” debate. A lawyer for Future, in his argument, painted Amazon as the “Big Brother in America” out to crush a small local company, while a retailer lobby group declared its “support to Indian company Future Group in its fight against Foreign Amazon.”For its part, Amazon wants Indian courts and regulators to enforce a business contract in what it views as a commercial dispute. If Future is allowed to renege on its contract with Amazon, it may signal to global investors that investments in India are risky, the U.S. company alleges. That is an inconvenient image at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs foreign investment to create jobs and reboot an economy pummeled by the pandemic.The stakes are high for both Amazon and Reliance. Securing Future’s assets will give Reliance, already India’s biggest retailer, an unparalleled edge in a market where most of the consumers still prefer shopping in stores. That’s an advantage Amazon is not willing to cede. Nor is Amazon willing to be upstaged by nationalistic arguments after losing ground to home-grown rivals in China. India, with its billion-plus consumers, is effectively the last big growth frontier.Ambani, 63, has been playing the nationalist card as well. The tycoon, who’s been warning against data colonization since 2018, often presents Reliance as a homegrown champion and its telecommunications, retail and digital ventures as nation-building initiatives.Vocal for LocalThis week, Reliance Retail introduced the “Indie” and “Swadesh” -- meaning from one’s own country -- taglines on its e-commerce websites to promote indigenous handicrafts and textiles, dovetailing with Modi’s call to be “Vocal for Local.” In a key May speech, Modi mentioned “self-reliance” at least 17 times during a 33-minute address to the nation.In August, Reliance announced the $3.4 billion purchase of the indebted Future Group that was straining under a severe cash crunch triggered by the coronavirus-led slump. Amazon, which holds a 49% stake in an unlisted Future Group entity, objected to this transaction and secured an order from a Singapore arbitration court that temporarily put the asset sale on hold. Future petitioned against this freeze-order in the Delhi High Court.East India Co.Harish Salve, the celebrity lawyer representing listed Future Retail Ltd., told the court that Amazon was behaving “like the East India Company of the 21st century.” Amazon’s stand is “either you do business with me or you shut down,” he said, stressing that an aborted asset sale deal will lead to thousands of job losses and bankruptcy.The East India Company -- formed by a group of British merchants who arrived in India in the 17th century to trade in spices and ended up colonizing the country for centuries -- has been an unpleasant memory in Indian history. This emotive reference marks the latest Indian versus outsider dispute this year that also saw Google face pushback from Indian startups and over 200 apps from Chinese technology companies being banned following a military clash along the Indo-China border.“Amazon has no investment in Future Retail,” Salve said in court. “Reliance wants to buy, but I have to ask Big Brother in America?” he said, asking if an overseas firm should be allowed to control an Indian company’s business dealings.$6.5 BillionGopal Subramanium, Amazon’s lawyer and India’s former solicitor general, countered that the American e-tailer was no Big Brother or East India Company and had in fact introduced Future Retail to a prospective investor to ease its distress. Amazon has created thousands of jobs and invested $6.5 billion in India so far, he said.Reliance’s lawyer has argued that the Singapore arbitration tribunal’s emergency order halting the transaction isn’t recognized by Indian law and the deal is crucial to save the retailer from collapse.These arguments in court were prompted by a Future Group legal petition after Amazon had written to India’s market and antitrust regulators apprising them of the Singapore arbitration order of an interim stay.Amazon suffered its first setback in the case last week, when the antitrust regulator, Competition Commission of India, approved the Reliance-Future deal. Earlier, Reliance said it intends to complete the transaction “without any delay.”(Corrects title of lawyer in 12th paragraph to say he was solicitor general)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Euro zone bond yields were a tad higher on Wednesday in a further sign that record-high stock markets are not enough to shift demand from fixed income markets supported by central bank stimulus.

Temperature checks in Japan, a disinfectant tunnel in Israel, and timed entry in Australia. These are just a few of the ways sports venues around the world are adjusting their businesses in pandemic times. As fans trickle back into stadiums, tech companies have stepped in to help create safer environments for them. Kim Damron is the President and CEO of an analytics company called Paciolan: "The one thing we're seeing now is whether you are the Olympics, college football or the NBA, we're all working twenty times harder to get fans in and the fans want to be there so I do feel more optimistic than I have as these events continue to add fans." Paciolan provides fans with contactless tickets, interactive seat maps and 'pod' ticketing which allows groups of two, four, or six to purchase seating socially distanced from other spectators. "We have been identified at the top of many leagues in Australia and America as a resurgence comeback technology that allows for fans to feel more comfortable as they re-enter the sports industry after Covid in this new normal." Zachary Klima is one the founders of WaitTime an artificial intelligence mobile app developed to help fans know where the longest lines are around a stadium. Cameras throughout a venue send real-time information to operators who can track and then respond to unsafe overcrowding of fans. "It's not just about finding the shortest line. These are risk zones. So what used to be a long line is now a COVID risk zone," Klima said. Another company working to make watching live sports safer is Populous. The architectural design firm is working with an NBA team in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to create safe, socially-distanced spaces for fans to gather. It plans to use shipping containers to host small bubbles of friends who will be able to order food and drink to their pod. With the Olympic games set for 2021 and COVID-19 infections on the rise in many countries around the world, Olympics organizers have yet to decide whether to allow spectators into venues next year and if so, how many.
