    Why should I have to buy my e-books if I have a new PC?

      About a year ago, my PC was stolen, but I'd backed up my old files on an external drive.

      This evening, I was searching through them and I found an e-book I'd bought and thought I'd read it.

      After installing the reader program it tells me...

      "This document cannot be opened on this machine. Please contact the site where you obtained the document to download another copy."

      Why can't I run these files?

      Amazon arn't going to say "Oh dear have another copy." they're going to say "tough you can buy another one for £5.95!"

      It would be like buying a book from Waterstones and them gluing the pages shut.
