Amazon selling Wikileaks e-book

John Moe Dec 9, 2010

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 Visa.com, mastercard.com and Paypal. Those sites had blocked donations to Wikileaks.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

We’re here for you.
