If you can shut it down that means someone else can also.

Does anyone believe anything that comes out of the White House anymore?

Don’t forget he’s Anti-American, and I have never said that about any other President, but his actions lead me to believe that he is Anti-American.

I have been out of work for 5 years now due to medical problems. I spent 3 years trying to make it on my own eating all the savings I had and sold all my guns, my truck, and just about anything else of mine to make ends meet. I spent the last 2 years fighting for social security and just had a hearing on Dec 2 so this year all I want for Christmas is some way to buy my two boys gifts for Christmas. I pray for all the people out there just like me and hope that they get the help they need and I find away to hang on another year.
I'm lucky, I was able to buy gifts for my 2 boys. For the rest of the family, extended, I went to the thrift store. My MIL loves her Pyrex, and keeps breaking one or more of the bowls in the set, so every time I see one, I grab it and save it for Christmas. She has a lot of serving dishes with a frosted rose on it, so anytime I find something she doesn't have, I get that, too. This year it's a flower vase. My father in law collects ducks, so book ends that are ducks and another duck. My brother's sister and her husband are jobless, so usefull stuff like socks, underwear, other clothing (the socks and underwear were new, but the other clothes were thift). His brother is much better off than we are, so we got him tennis balls and is wife a gift card to her favorite yarn store on line.

She broke the user agreement and she knew she did. No matter what Amazon did in this matter they would come out looking like the bad guy. Funny how people pick what to turn a blind eye to when they want to.
Notice that a book doesn't require a 'user agreement' and thus you can't break it. Even items like DVDs don't require any such agreement. Blurays are usually net connected though so all bets are off, if they decide to remote revoke you, your player, your individual disc, whatever, they can.
It really is a fundamental difference between buying and licensing. The retailers pushing this stuff have been very careful to obscure this difference so most customers don't know anything is different... yet.
The Kindle is nothing more than a tethered viewer for Amazon content. It is even priced as such, as a loss leader to be made up on future content licensing. Close your Amazon account and it is a paperweight. Heck, if Amazon goes out (not likely) it is a paperweight. The only way to use it outside Amazon's direct control is to break the DRM, which is technically a felony.
Note that Google, B&N and Apple's products are almost exactly the same, just a little less blunt. You can at least load open epub books onto most of the others but the business model on all of them is to make money from the content 'store' that doesn't actually sell anything.

I pray all the time nothing like this ever happens to one of my kids, and they school system we are in I don’t see it happening, cause if this ever did I know I would end of in jail before it was all said and done with cause there are three things you don’t mess with in my life and that’s my wife and two boys.

I have been sucker punched before and let me say it take a real coward to do it.

I had my doubts about this case when I first read about it.

Yeah this is all a little to late, and there is not much that can or will be done about it now.
