Yep that is one of the nastiest features. I find the move from owning books to 'leasing' e-books highly offensive.
I just remove the DRM on my books which lets me put up with the Kindle.
As for privacy, the Internet and casual web browsing is more of a concern to me than Kindle. Privacy is very hard to come by at this point in time, and most people are busy freely giving away their right to privacy on tools like twitter and facebook.
