The high school student who sued Amazon.com for deleting an edition of 1984 from all its Kindles without prior notice has won the case:

According to the terms of the settlement filed Friday, Amazon agreed that it will not impermissibly “remotely delete or modify” any books, magazines, or newspapers from U.S. users’ Kindles. Amazon also has provided consumers the option of replacing the deleted books and notes to all users who had Orwell books deleted or giving them $30 in cash or gift cards.

The student lost all the notes he had written onto his Kindle when Amazon remotely deleted the book.
