Amazon is Watching You

As has been widely reported over the last few days, Amazon decided to delete copies of George Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984 from users Kindle’s in response to a copyright violation from the e-books’ publisher.

Aside from raising all manner of questions about how much trust should readers have in their E-book suppliers, and how copyright should be managed in the digital world, it’s another prime example of the wonderous surveillance state we live in. Be warned,  Big Brother Amazon is watching you!
