Kicking back at Kindle

Last week, Amazon went all Big Brother on Kindle owners, and the resulting outrage was totally appropriate.

Now, one person is turning that outrage into revenge. 17-year-old student Justin Gawronski decided to take action when his Kindle ate his homework assignment after Amazon deleted the unauthorized copies of 1984 that he innocently purchased. He lost his electronic notes and annotations stored along with his digital copy of George Orwell's classic. He's suing Amazon in a class action suit, asking to prevent Amazon from improperly accessing users' Kindles and he's also seeking punitive damages.

How much is a high school book report worth? Seems like the kid might get a more interesting story if he writes about this situation instead.
