Amazon recently got busted for deleting copies of user-purchased books from their Kindle e-book devices. Authors of the books affected included George Orwell and Ayn Rand. Users who purchased some copies of 1984 or Animal Farm will have those books purged from their Kindles, any record of the purchase erased, and the cost credited to their accounts.

Former owners of the Rand books were being charged a service fee for costs associated with deleting the books, and a surcharge for the email notifying them of the removal. Users attempting to contact Amazon will receive a form response reminding them that Kindle is a technological miracle for which they should be grateful, that Amazon is not a charity, and suggesting that if they were displeased with the company's actions, they could "start their own goddamn ebook service and stop sucking the welfare teet, you worthless goddamn bunch of social parasites."
