Re: In response to Amazon's remote deletion of 1984 and Animal Farm Hi there, Saw you'd written about the Amazon / 1984 flap, and I thought you might be
interested in the petition we launched yesterday: http://defectivebydesign.org/amazon1984 We have over 1400 signatures already, and signers include Lawrence Lessig,
Clay Shirky, Cory Doctorow and other notable authors, librarians, and
scholars. The petition opens: "We believe in a way of life based on the free exchange of ideas, in which
books have and will continue to play a central role. Devices like Amazon's
are trying to determine how people will interact with books, but Amazon's
use of DRM to control and monitor users and their books constitutes a clear
threat to the free exchange of ideas." Please have a look, and if you support the cause or think it would be
interesting to your readers, a blog post would be great! Thanks, -Holmes Wilson
