Amazon took down my Obama book and did not tell me why (Update: the book is now available)

Amazon took down my Obama book and did not tell me why.

Before the book was removed, I had added some search terms that were the titles and authors of other political books, because I thought people who searched for those other political books might like to read my book. Afterward, I received en email saying that these new search terms had been approved, and that my book was available.

However, quite a few days later, I received another email email saying that those new search terms were in violation of their policy, and that if I did not remove them within 72 hours, the book would be taken down. I immediately removed those search terms. And they even sent me another email saying that my changes had been approved, and that the book was available. But then a few days later, they took the book down anyway.

When they took the book down, they never explained why. I have since contacted them requesting an explanation, but the person who wrote back said they are sending my question to someone else who is better equipped to answer. I am still awaiting their reply.

Here is the dead link:

And here is the internet archive of the same link:

Update: amazon sent me an email which said my book will be available within 24 hours. However, they have still not explained why they took it down in the first place.

Update: the book is now available. But they still haven’t told me why they removed it.

I’ve converted my blog post “1,202 examples of Obama’s lies, lawbreaking, etc.” into an e-book. Please submit an amazon customer review.

Regular readers of my blog are familiar with this blog post that I wrote, which is called “Here are 1,202 well sourced examples of Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, waste, etc.”

I have converted the blog post into a 464 page amazon kindle book, which is listed at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01E4U36NE

If you have read the blog post, then you have also read the book, as the contents of the two are identical.

If you have read it, please submit a customer review to amazon.

It is perfectly OK with me if your review is negative. You don’t have to worry about hurting my feelings.

Thank you.

French politicians think Amazon, Google, and Facebook were created by government bureaucrats

When it comes to successful American internet companies such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook, the French government wants the European Union to  “level the playing field,” and thinks that government regulation is needed to “allow the emergence of alternatives in Europe to U.S. Web giants.”

What idiocy.

American internet companies did not become successful due to an “uneven playing field,” or because of U.S. regulations that “allowed the emergence” of successful internet companies. Instead, American internet companies became successful because they created great websites that gave their customers what the customers wanted.

All the regulations in the world won’t give France a single successful internet company. Successful internet companies are created by entrepreneurs and programmers, not by government bureaucrats.

Reuters reports:

France calls for EU to regulate Web giants to counter dominance

France is pushing for the European Union to regulate global internet companies like Google, Amazon.com, and Facebook more aggressively, to counter their growing dominance over online commerce and services.

In an interview published by Liberation newspaper on Thursday, France’s minister for the digital economy, Fleur Pellerin, said Europe needed new regulatory powers to intervene much earlier, to level the playing field in the internet economy and allow the emergence of alternatives in Europe to U.S. Web giants.

She said Europe needed to be able to act quickly, as soon as problems are identified, rather than getting tied up in lengthy and costly disputes that did nothing to help consumers.

“The current tools of competition law are totally unsuited to the fast-changing world of the Internet,” Pellerin said in the interview conducted in French. “To get out of this impasse, Europe needs a regulatory authority to act on an ex-ante basis, as soon as conflicts and abuse emerge on the part of internet platforms.”
