"Our 'solution' to the problem was stupid, thoughtless, and painfully out of line with our principles," Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wrote to customers. "It is wholly self-inflicted, and we deserve the criticism we've received. We will use the scar tissue from this painful mistake to help make better decisions going forward, ones that match our mission."This apology came in late July, after the deletion of the Orwell works without informing Kindle users until after the fact. Apparently, Amazon did not have the rights to distribute the ebooks, but somehow overlooked this as many users downloaded them.
"Unless restrained and enjoined, Amazon will continue to commit such acts," the suit said.Not to mention, when Amazon deleted the content, they caused "intentional interference to private property". They don't have the right to go into your house and take paper books back, what more right do they have taking back your e-books from your Kindles and iPhones?
