Apparently, this was the "genius" response to curb illegal copies of "1984" and "Funny Farm," which were being sold on Kindle.com, Amazon's sister-site.

Conspiracy theorists jumped on this story quickly though, citing this as just another Big Brother-like move and clearly an inside job.



Bezos' apology came a week after unauthorized copies of "1984" and "Animal Farm" were wiped from Kindle readers in a move that triggered privacy concerns and drew unfavorable comparisons to Big Brother-like behavior.
