One day they booted my merchant account for violating their terms of service. The next day they apologized and restored my privileges. But had they not admitted their mistake, what could I have done about it?

You could've actually definitely done a lot lol especially because their ToS wasn't breached - Monetary gains lost, etc etc -- an ecommerce lawyer would be golden for you

I simply told them the truth about half a dozen times, as well as offering them a free copy of the book to read. I didn't expect it to work at all, actually. I'd already shut down AdSense, uninstalled Google Toolbar and Gmail and Google Reader and Google Bookmarks and Google Webmaster Tools and...
I still don't use Google Checkout. I'm in the process of moving the book to Amazon. Until then I'm using PayPal.
