According to what you are saying, though, this is considered piracy, and is against Amazon's terms of service. (Even though Amazon appears to condone it when you look at the guidance on the "Manage Your Kindle" page.) I wonder if our resident Ninja Lawyer will chime in with his thoughts?
I believe that what Amazon are intending is that sharing books within a household is fine, but wider-spread distribution is not permitted. But that's just my opinion; you need to ask CS.
