+ - Amazon remote-wipes user's Kindle with no real explanation->

Rudisaurus writes: "Think those e-books on your Kindle are yours? Think again! Amazon has reached out over the web and remote-wiped a user's Kindle. When asked why, Amazon's only explanation is that they somehow associated the user's account with another which they had deemed involved in nefarious activity. Further requests for details were simply stonewalled. Nice!"
