Amazon selling Wikileaks e-book

Amazon's UK store is selling an e-book containing excerpts from the recent Wikileaks cables. This after Amazon kicked Wikileaks off the Amazon servers they were renting last week, citing copyright violations. Amazon says since this e-book has original commentary and excerpts, not whole cables, there's no conflict.

Meanwhile, a 16 year old boy in the Netherlands was arrested for taking part in online attacks against, and Paypal. Those sites had blocked donations to Wikileaks.
