And Amazon is not the only company that has this type of attitude.
I don't disagree at all with your assessment of Amazon's handling of that situation. I was only questioning why a user who already—by their own admission—strips the DRM and keeps local backups of all their ebook purchases, would be leery of purchasing ebooks from Amazon because of this story. That
person would never have to worry about their library being taken from them regardless of where they buy from.
