Amazon yanks books from Kindles
In 2009, some Kindle users woke up to find the books they were reading, or had simply purchased, had been removed from their device in the wee hours and without them knowing.
There were only two books affected, but it was enough to get the attention of just about every Kindle owner, and people who might have been contemplating jumping on Amazon’s growing e-book platform. After much outcry, Amazon said the removal happened due to a rights-issue from a third-party company, and that it had taken steps to make sure it would never happen again.
