If all the books on your shelf suddenly disappeared, you’d probably say you’d been robbed.
But when a Norwegian woman lost access to her Kindle books without warning, she learned she had never owned them in the first place.
Linn Jordet Nygaard, 30, an IT consultant from Oslo, said the debacle began two weeks ago when her Kindle stopped working; she later discovered she was locked out of her Kindle account, and could not access her library. [thestar.com...]
I would imagine there are a few e-book authors here at Webmaster World. It's probably a silly question but are you aware of the policy of e-books only being licensed as opposed to being owned? I myself read a lot of books, very few have been e-books yet except for the ones I borrow from my local library electronically. They expire and get deleted from my HDD after 21 days. And just like their traditional cousins, nobody else can take it out electronically while I have it checked out. But now knowing this I think I will continue to invest in dead tree books (as lucy24 would say) despite the extra cost.
