Amazon.com Allows E-Book About WikiLeaks To Sell

Posted Dec 9, 2010

There is a book now available on the Amazon.com Kindle UK store called WikiLeaks documents expose US foreign policy conspiracies. All cables with tags from 1-5000. This is ironic because WikiLeaks attempted to have their website hosted on Amazon.com services while they were being hit with a DDoS attack. Amazon.com removed them from their servers, citing a terms of service violation.

The book is receiving negative reviews from buyers because they believe this information should be free and that Amazon.com should not be profiting from it. Amazon.com representatives justified the sales of this e-book because it ?contains commentary and analysis regarding recent WikiLeaks disclosures, not the original material disclosed via the WikiLeaks website.? There are excerpts from the cables in this book though.
