I usually just lurk here but I've been following this debate with some
interest as I'm about to get a Kindle myself. Without defending Amazon
deleting the book, as I understand it users can actually backup the content
on their Kindle to their computer and thus if Amazon deletes a book it can
be restored from the backup. The wifi connection can also be turned off and
books just purchased from a computer and then transferred to the Kindle
which would also guard against unauthorised deletions.
