I agree handled very badly. But more terrible customer service than sinisterly Orwellian, no?

I don't like it that they can just remove something from my device. I would've been angry had I been in the middle of the book and it just disappeared without notice. However, I can understand needing to retrieve the illegal copies and refund customers money. This is a tricky situation. I do absolutely love my Kindle though and do not plan on ever being without one!

Ironic, isn't it? Even if the copies were purchased illegally...perhaps Amazon should have offered a legitimate replacement rather than deleting the book(s) and refunding the money.
