But isn't the responsibility of the rights holder i.e. mobipocket or the publishers to defend their copyrights under the DMCA? Amazon's encryption isn't being broken or circumvented here so does Amazon actually have a DMCA claim. If this is an issue, shouldn't mobipocket or the publishers be the ones issuing the take down notices?
