What's the deal with Wikileaks and Amazon.com?

I've been finally let in the loop that there's something going down with some organization and Amazon.com (I use it all the time). I know something about Amazon dropping Wikileaks and causing and uproar about it but I thought (this is what I've heard) Wikileaks was a company illegally distributing copyrighted information.

So if you could explain to me what the heck is going on I'd really appreciate it.

    Well, Wikileaks released a lot of secret classified records like this one:


    I didn't know about the Amazon part though.

  • To the U.S. and other governments and corporations involved in the crackdown on WikiLeaks:

    We call on you to stop the crackdown on WikiLeaks and its partners immediately. We urge you to respect democratic principles and laws of freedom of expression and freedom of the press. If WikiLeaks and the journalists it works with have violated any laws they should be pursued in the courts with due process. They should not be subjected to an extra-judicial campaign of intimidation.
