Amazon Offers $30 or Redelivery of 1984

Amazon has already apologized for the Big Brother moment that saw the company remotely delete copies of 1984 from customers' Kindles back in July However, the company is today offering some compensation for that move.

Yesterday Amazon emailed affected customers and told them that they were willing to redeliver George Orwell's 1984 to their Kindle. Customers who do not wish to have the ebook redelivered can instead opt for a gift certificate for check for $30.

It's not yet clear how this will effect the lawsuit a student filed against Amazon for deleting his copy of the book along with notes he had made for school. Check out the full letter to Kindle customers below (via the Wall Street Journal).
