It's not cleared up by that quoted bit of text. It only states that Amazon can view what you have on your kindle, not remove it. The illegal part is not relevant either, because the kindle users aren't the ones doing something illegal, it's Amazon (if indeed they had no license to sell the Ayn Rand novels).

The relevant part of the terms of service is this:
Quote:
Use of Digital Content.
Upon your payment of the applicable fees set by Amazon, Amazon grants you the non-exclusive right to keep a permanent copy of the applicable Digital Content and to view, use, and display such Digital Content an unlimited number of times, solely on the Device or as authorized by Amazon as part of the Service and solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Digital Content will be deemed licensed to you by Amazon under this Agreement unless otherwise expressly provided by Amazon.
Nowhere in the license agreement / terms of service does Amazon give itself the right to alter or remove digital content from the Kindle, only to update the device software and view/know what digital content you have on the device and how you use it.
