+ - Amazon issues DMCA to remove Kindle PID Script->

An anonymous reader writes: Amazon has issued a DMCA takedown notice to MobileRead for it's posting of a python script that determines a Kindle's PID based on it's serial number.

kindlepid.py is a small Python script allowing you to derive a Mobipocket-compatible personal identifier (PID) for your Kindle reader. This PID in itself has nothing at all to do with reading any copyrighted content. It is only used to make legitimate e-book purchases at stores other than Amazon's.

Since the script enables book purchases for the Kindle at sites other than Amazon, is Amazon trying to build an eBook monopoly?
