    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.
