Well, apparently it wasn’t enough for a high school student whose copy of “1984” which he was reading for class was also deleted. Justin D. Gawronski, 17, filed a lawsuit claiming that the “1984” novel removed from his Kindle rendered all his electronic notes and annotations he made on the e-reader useless.
Now, Amazon.com has agreed to settle this lawsuit. Filed last week in a U.S. District Court in Seattle, the company agreed it will never remotely delete e-books from U.S. Kindle users except for special specified instances. As to whether the judge approves the deal is yet to be known. 😉
