DRM Strikes Again - Kindle owners find out about DRM's ever-present threat
From Ars Techinica:
Some Kindle users are angry because Amazon blocked them from their Kindle accounts, thereby blocking them from accessing their already-purchased media. Even if these stories are exaggerated, they once again highlight the caveats that come with DRMed media. You don't own your content—Amazon does.
I posting this in the Gaming section to show how the industry can be effected by DRM in not so obvious ways and how it intersects with your life much more then you realize. Hopefully by reading this article you may get a closer insight into how DRM is not the solution we have to blindly agree too.

Thank you for posting this nemowolf. I had posted something similar in the community section:
thinking about buying a Kindle? Be WARNED
I hope those people who are seriously considering buying a kindle/kindle2 will be careful with their accounts.They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.
