Until it happens to them one day and then they "get" the reasons why.
I'm just thinking though, at a guess, the majority of people having a kindle would not even think of backing their purchases to a hard drive. After all, it's always "in the cloud". So even if the purchases were not DRM'ed, and if an account was closed, there's no way of retrieving them anyway as most people don't backup to a local drive. Just us geeks do that!
