Submission + - Amazon Censors Orwell's 1984 From Kindles (nytimes.com)

isBandGeek() writes: In an ironic twist, Kindle customers that had purchased copies of works by George Orwell, including 1984, found that these e-books had been erased from their Kindles. Amazon had remotely deleted purchased e-books from Kindles while claiming that the books were actually copies sold by a company that did not have rights to these books. Apparently, this isn't an isolated incident. Other customers report that books by Ayn Rand had also been deleted.
