A link to one of many examples (scroll down to Product Details): http://www.amazon.com/The-Canterbury...8043762&sr=1-5
This particular example has multiple copies by various publishers, but that is not always the case.
Now, if Amazon's policy limits a customer to six devices, where does a publisher's limit come in to play and how is it enforced? I suspect the publisher's limitation takes precedent over Amazon, as did the Text-To-Speech issue.
Yet another distortion of Amazon's sales pitch?
It's not Amazon's policy, its always been the publisher's decision. Amazon has always said that it's generally 6 devices, nothing has changed.
