Another development reported here. Amazon apparently back-peddled in the face of some strong criticism. Ms. Nygaard’s Kindle has been restored.
Just remember, though, Amazon was technically within its rights. When you click “BUY” on anything managed by DRM (Digital Rights Management), you’re giving the nod to a little bit of fraud. Because you’re not buying ‘content’, you’re only renting. And you don’t get to decide when the lease is up. Or when your reader becomes a $100 doorstop.
