Amazon are now censoring the ebooks that customers have already bought, often without their knowledge or consent.
The new censored versions of books by Roald Dahl were uploaded to customers devices overnight, without any notification, with customers now unable to see the original versions of the much loved classics they thought they'd bought.
Customers with Kindle devices may be under the impression that the books bought and paid for became their property, but this has proven not to be the case. Amazon can go into any device and delete, edit or change any book of their choosing, even if the customer purchased it years ago and it's on their own device.
According to Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire the woman who allegedly led the woke editing of Roald Dahl’s Books is a "Non-Binary, Asexual, Polyamorous Relationship Anarchist". The children's books are just some of those targeted by her and other self-appointed literary nihilists. J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter ebooks, already on a target-list due to her views on Transgenderism, could face deletion by the same method.
Now it is possible for your entire ebook library to be censored, long after you have purchased and downloaded it.
Michael Kozlowski writing in Good E-Reader tried to play down the censorship row suggesting: "There are numerous downfalls of the ebook format; if the book is suddenly made into a television show or movie, the classic cover will be automatically updated, and there is no way to stop it. Sometimes, a book will be edited for spelling or grammar mistakes, and the update will be pushed out automatically to everyone who purchased the book on Kindle or Kobo. Now, there is a way that publishers are pushing out updates, censorship."
