Amazon.com has offered to replace the George Orwell books that it deleted from customers' Kindle e-book readers earlier in the year.

The company initially sold the books and allowed users to download it, but later realised it didn't have the digital rights to the books.
In an ironically Orwellian scenario, it then simply erased the books from users' readers without informing them.
Many users were shocked at the move, and many others shocked that Amazon was able to do so.
Now, the company says it has acquired the rights to "1984" and "Animal Farm" and will replace the books it erased.
Alternatively, users could opt for a $30.00 compensation payout.
