Back in the early days of Kindle a person uploaded a version of 1984 that they did not own the copyright to. Amazon refunded the people who purchased it their money and removed the books from kindles when they found out.
Because of the huge uproar over Amazon removing these illegally sold books, Amazon promised not to remove books from Kindles without user permission.
