Analog Vs. Digital: Kindle Subscriptions Aren't Really Yours

From Gizmodo:

Consider this to be your dismaying PSA of the day: Apparently, if you're a Kindle owner with a magazine subscription, and you decide to stop subscribing, the back issues you previously downloaded are also lost—for good.

Look, I know it's easier to store gigabytes of data (aka books, magazines, and music) on some random device the size of a trade paperback book. But, do you really own those bits and bytes?

My books are mine. You'll have to pry them from my cold, dead, ink-stained hands. Who really owns your library?
