Submission + - Jeff Bezos: 'Sorry for remotely erasing "1984& (nytimes.com)

levicivita writes: From the down-but-not-out NYT comes an article (warning login may be required) about user backlash against Kindle's embedded DRM: "Last week, Jeffrey P. Bezos, chief executive of Amazon, offered an apparently heartfelt and anguished mea culpa to customers whose digital editions of George Orwell's "1984" were remotely deleted from their Kindle reading devices. Though copies of the books were sold by a bookseller that did not have legal rights to the novel, Mr. Bezos wrote on a company forum that Amazon's " 'solution' to the problem was stupid, thoughtless and painfully out of line with our principles." Jeff's post is here.
