A teen is suing Amazon for deleting a book from its Kindle reader.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – A student is suing Amazon for deletion of a book from its Kindle reader. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), a lawsuit was filed on behalf of 17 year-old Justin D. Gawronski, who is alleging the company deleted an e-book he purchased without notice, as well as his electronic notes.
Chicago attorney Jay Edelson is quoted by the AP as stating of the issue, “Amazon.com had no more right to hack into people’s Kindles than its customers have the right to hack into Amazon’s bank account to recover a mistaken overpayment… Technology companies increasingly feel that because they have the ability to access people’s personal property, they have the right to do so. That is 100 percent contrary to the laws of this country.”
The lawsuit is reportedly seeking damages in an unspecified amount for purchasers of deleted e-books in addition to a ban on deletions.
