This is an apology for the way we previously handled illegally sold copies of 1984 and other novels on Kindle. Our "solution" to the problem was stupid, thoughtless, and painfully out of line with our principles. It is wholly self-inflicted, and we deserve the criticism we've received. We will use the scar tissue from this painful mistake to help make better decisions going forward, ones that match our mission.(HT Instapundit)

Jeff Bezos Apologizes For Amazon's Conduct
He doesn't try to dodge the issue and directly apologizes for Amazon's conduct. Good for him. Hopefully, this incident will help lead to better behavior by Amazon and other eBook providers in the future.
