    There's already a thread about this. Amazon isn't "banning" ebooks. In this case it turned out that the "publisher" of the Orwell Books actually didn't have the copyright to be selling them. It was a stuff up on the publisher's behalf. Although it's still a pretty horrible precedent and poor PR for amazon.

    Ars Technica has a better article.
