Did Someone Get Fired?

..or are they just avoiding a lawsuit?

Deleted 1984 novels to be returned to customers
Amazon said it would provide owners of its Kindle electronic book reader with new copies of the George Orwell novels 1984 and Animal Farm for no charge.

Amazon said customers could also choose to receive a $US30 gift certificate or cheque instead.

The email also contained a copy of the apology that Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos made in July, in which he called the company's deletion of the books "stupid, thoughtless and painfully out of line with our principles."
