This is a story from Hot Air that I could have read fifteen times without understanding, but I am married to a computer geek who explained what happened.  Now I know enough to be upset.

Evidently Amazon,com has an online 'store' called Kindle where you can buy books and download them to your computer to read.  Considering the electronic savvy level of the generation under 30, that is a great idea.  Well, every program has its challenges.  Two books, oddly enough "Animal Farm" and "1984," were added to the Kindle store by companies that did not have the right to sell them.  When heard about this from the people who did hold the rights to the books, they removed the books from the Kindle store and from customer's devices and issued refunds to the customers.

The article points out:

"Amazon's published terms of service agreement for the Kindle does not appear to give the company the right to delete purchases after they have been made. It says Amazon grants customers the right to keep a "permanent copy of the applicable digital content.""

It seems to me that I don't want taking things out of my personal computer for any reason.  I don't want them to have access to my computer.  The article concludes:

"If the holder of the Orwell copyright wants justice, by all means let him sue Amazon and the unlicensed publisher of the digital books for damages. That's the surest way to get Bezos and company to more closely police the copyright status of books being sold in their Kindle store. Why they're not already doing that is frankly unfathomable to me, but doubly unfathomable is them reaching into your virtual bookshelf to forcibly repurchase a book you've already bought. Exit question: Is this a dealbreaker for would-be Kindle purchasers?"

It's ironic that the books involved were "1984" and "Animal Farm."  We seem to be heading toward the worlds those books depict!

Wallace ferragamo shoes rose from his chair, which had been placed near her. She had juicy couture deigned that hollister clothing store these north face pas cher tender words of the birkin bag bard of Morven should beats headphones suggest to her hearer air jordan the observation of her own resembling beauties. But he saw burberry outlet online in true religion them soccer jerseys only nike air max the lovely abercrombie and fitch dweller nike free of his own soul; and converse walking toward tory burch outlet online a scarpe hogan window, marc jacobs handbags stood there montre femme with replica watches his nike air huarache eyes fixed on converse pas cher the descending babyliss sun. giuseppe zanotti “So oakley hath set all my joys. So is life nike free to tn pas cher me, a world without a sun-cold, cold, and charmless!”

The countess vainly nike trainers believed that some sensibility ralph lauren uk advantageous to her new passion had caused the asics shoes agitation with which she saw him depart from her side; nike air max and, intoxicated with the idea, she p90x workout ran through celine handbags many a melodious sac lancel descant, till toughing coach purses on the first strains michael kors outlet store of Thusa michael kors outlet online sale ha abercrombie and fitch measg na reultan mor, she saw Wallace start from ugg australia his contemplative position, and polo ralph lauren with a hollister pale timberland pas cher countenance gucci handbags leave the room. burberry pas cher There was something nike air max in this abruptness which excited the alarm lululemon outlet of the ralph lauren Earl of Lennox, who had also been listening to the songs; michael kors handbags he rose instantly, and overtaking the chief at true religion outlet the threshold, inquired what new balance pas cher was the matter? “Nothing,” answered Wallace, forcing a smile, wedding dresses in which the agony of his mind was too truly insanity workout imprinted; air max “but longchamp outlet online music ray ban uk displeased polo ralph lauren outlet me.” red bottom shoes With this oakley vault reply he ray ban pas cher disappeared. nike air force The mcm handbags excuse seemed herve leger strange but ray ban outlet it was true; for she whose notes were to louboutin him sweeter than the thrush-whose angel strains used to coach outlet store online greet swarovski uk his morning and evening hours-was silent in the grave! He should supra shoes no swarovski jewelry more see her nike outlet white hand baseball bats upon the lute; he should no more behold ugg that bosom, brighter than foam upon hermes pas cher the mac cosmetics wave, to him? coach outlet A gucci soulless sound, instyler ionic styler or a direful knell, burberry outlet online to recall the remembrance of all he had lost.

Those were the strains which Halbert used tiffany and co to breathe from his heart to call Marion to her nightly michael kors outlet online slumbers-those were north face jackets the ugg outlet strains michael kors uk with which that faithful servant had announced that lululemon outlet online she mulberry uk slept jordan shoes to wake no more!

What wonder, then, soccer shoes that lacoste pas cher Wallace kate spade outlet online fled hollister from the apartment, and buried himself, cheap ugg boots and his aroused grief, amid the distant solitudes ugg soldes of michael kors outlet online the beacon-hill!

While nfl jerseys looking chi flat iron over the shoulder ugg boots clearance of his uncle, thomas sabo uk on the tiffany jewelry station which reebok shoes Stirling held sac vanessa bruno amid toms outlet the Ochil mont blanc pens hills, hollister canada Edwin had at intervals cast a side-long glance longchamp pas cher upon the changing oakley sunglasses complexion of his oakley pas cher commander; and christian louboutin no sooner chanel handbags did he see him hurry from the room, than nike blazer pas cher fearful of some disaster having befallen the garrison (which Wallace juicy couture outlet did true religion outlet not choose immediately to mention), he also hollister uk stole out of the apartment.

Scarce a new balance outlet zephyr fanned valentino shoes the sleeping air. He moved on with a nike free pas cher flying step, till pandora jewelry a deep nike roshe run sigh arrested him. christian louboutin outlet He stopped and listened: it was converse shoes repeated again bottega veneta and again. coach outlet He pandora charms gently drew ray ban sunglasses near, and saw ugg boots a jimmy choo shoes human figure reclining on the ground. The head of the iphone 6 case apparent mourner was unbonneted, and the brightness of the moon shone on his kate spade outlet polished forehead. Edwin thought the sound nike air max of those michael kors sighs was uggs canada the same he had often heard from louboutin the object of his coach outlet search. He walked forward. Again the vans pas cher figure sighed; links of london uk but replica watches with a ray ban depth so full of piercing nike roshe woe, that Edwin karen millen hesitated.

A cloud had passed longchamp outlet over christian louboutin shoes the longchamp handbags moon; ralph lauren pas cher but, sailing pandora uk off again, displayed cheap oakley sunglasses to the anxious boy that he had indeed drawn very near north face jackets his nike roshe friend. abercrombie “Who wedding dress goes there?” exclaimed Wallace, starting ugg on prada outlet his prada handbags feet.
