Social Control

Amazon sold people "1984" and "Animal Farm" for their Kindles, but it turns out the people who said they owned it didn't. So they had to delete it. From everybody.

Hadn't really given this story much thought, kind of laughing at the irony of it but seeing it as a simple rights issue. After reading this article at io9, it made me think that maybe this idea is a little scary.
