When I buy a book from Amazon, I assume it's legitimate. How else can you reasonably be expected to deal with a merchant? It would be different if you were perusing ebooks at pirates.r.us.com. But Amazon is huge, and generally assumed to be a legitimate retailer. Customers should not be expected to have to dig in a research every product to validate it prior to purchase. If Amazon is selling illegal stuff, I say that is an Amazon problem, not a customer problem. Customers - in general - just do not have the knowledge, tools, or experience to ferret out illegal stuff offered for sale from a reputable retailer. You might be able to spot some super obvious fraud, but I doubt many ebooks fall into that small category. I have bought several ebooks from Amazon that look like they were proofread by a 3 year old, but that doesn't make me think they are not legit, ... just poorly done.
