Amazon accused of closing and wiping Kindle account, reminding us we don’t own DRM content | iMore.com

There’s a story going around about Amazon closing someone’s account and wiping her Kindle of all its content, without offering any specific information or recourse. It’s a single-sourced story, and Amazon’s side hasn’t and may not be heard, but it serves as a powerful cautionary tale for users of any DRM (digital rights management) wrapped online content provider, including Apple’s iTunes.

  1. Honestly I am kind of surprised that the user had all their stuff wiped and no notice was given. I suppose this is one of the main reasons I tend to not buy online content other than the occasional song and even those I have stored on several mediums I have all my Itunes musics saved to my Amazon cloud as well.
