Amazon is much like a tiger in the wild:
does what it will to hapless humans
who are in its territory.
Did you know?
I tried to give a Kindle version of my book to a Canadian friend and got this email:
"Amazon won’t let people from ‘my country’ redeem any ebooks either. I just tried. Wow.
Did Trump make a deal with them?
He’s been disrespecting Canadians and our Prime Minister a lot lately.
Here’s the message I received from Amazon:
This eBook cannot be redeemed by customers in your country.
If you do not live in the same country as the person who gave you the Kindle book gift,
the book may not be available to you due to copyright restrictions.
How does copyright affect it going to another country?
Sheesh. I guess you will have to send it only to the USA citizens.
They are throwing up a lot of roadblocks - for what reason I wonder."
Earlier my Canadian friend tried to give a review for my audio book which she BOUGHT HERSELF.
I got this email:
"I tried to review this on Amazon but it won’t let me
as it says I have to spend at least 50 dollars in the last 12 months to be able to review a book I’ve bought on Amazon.
Due to medical bills, buying that audio book was difficult,
nor has my friend been able to spend $50 dollars on Amazon.
HAS THIS OR
SOMETHING LIKE IT HAPPENED TO YOU
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS?
