Amazon says Kindle customers to get credit


NEW YORK — Amazon has alerted its Kindle customers that they are entitled to a credit on prior electronic book purchases as part of settlements between some major ebook publishers and the government. Inc. told its Kindle customers over the weekend that they will be contacted when the credit — an undetermined amount for every eligible Kindle book purchased between April, 2010, and May, 2012 — is applied to their account if the court approves the settlement in February. Customers don’t need to do anything to receive the credit.
