    US is a loose u . s . a ., so in easy terms books from embargoed countries or books that are counterfeit or violate copyright or different rules could be banned. Others could be limited (won't be able to sell graphical person books to youngsters or particularly places without the main appropriate license, as an occasion), however the 1st replace protects e book shops particularly lots to be waiting to sell almost something. no remember if or no longer you would be on the FBI or CIA's watch record is yet another tale (Anarchists' Cookbook).
