I don't use Amazon much, but I've recently read somewhere that Amazon retains all copyright to reviews posted. So apparently if you review something there you can't use the same review on another site/blog. Is that true?

No, it's not. Reviewers own their reviews and may post them anywhere they want -- the Amazon TOS is clear on this.

What Amazon CAN do is flow your reviews through its affiliates. Because of this reflow, my reviews are on a LOT of sites out there that I've never even visited.

The only exception is for Amazon Vine reviews -- reviews of Vine products (i.e., "free" review copies) may be posted on non-purchase sites (blogs, GoodReads, etc.) but Amazon asks that the reviews not be posted on competing purchasing sites (B&N, etc.).

Ah, ok. The original source I read it on must have had things wrong. They did mention the reuse on Amazon affiliate sites though.
