That's obviously the problem: Amazon doesn't want to put in the work required to check and validate anything. So far, they've settled for going after a violation when it was brought to their attention, which is obviously good enough for the law. But as poohbear suggested, there are probably loads of content that haven't been brought to their attention yet, bouncing around in the Kindle store.
Many more violation-floods like this might be enough to force Amazon to close the store to everyone but established publishers in time...
