eBooks: Der freundliche Supergau

Amazon löscht bezahlte eBooks aus dem Kindle-Zugriff ihrer Kunden und ist sich der Tragweite seines Tuns nicht bewußt.

Jetzt verspricht Drew Herdener per eMail (Mashable)

"These books were added to our catalog using our self-service platform by a third-party who did not have the rights to the books…When we were notified of this by the rights holder, we removed the illegal copies from our systems and from customers’ devices, and refunded customers….We are changing our systems so that in the future we will not remove books from customers’ devices in these circumstances."

... so, so - for me one more re-confirmation, why not to buy digital content and leave it in the clouds
