Amazon Prime User Agreement

In addition, Amazon argues that its website user agreements clearly indicate that users do not actually purchase some of the content. Instead, they purchase a limited license for “indeterminate on-demand display.” 12.1. This agreement is in English and you agree that we will contact you and that you will contact us in English for the duration of the agreement. If you visit the site or send us emails, contact us electronically. We contact you via the website, Seller Central and the email address we have filed for you. By registering for the service and accepting the terms of this Agreement, you agree to receive communications from us electronically. We may provide all communications and information relating to the service and your distributor account, including, but not limited to service agreements, changes or modifications to these agreements or guidelines, disclosures, communications, transaction information, statements, responses to claims and other customer communications that we may have to provide you electronically through law (together communications). Messages can be sent to the website or Seller Central or email to the email address we have filed for you, and all of these messages are considered “written” and are received by you and transmitted correctly. You are responsible for printing, storing and maintaining your own communication records, including copies of this agreement. This condition does not affect your legal rights, including the right to request a copy of this agreement at any time. You can contact us via the service by visiting the “Contact” link on the website or Seller Central. In addition, Amazon says, the site`s necessary user arrangements explain why some content may no longer be available later. When an Amazon Prime Video user buys content from the platform, they really pay a limited license for “unlimited on-demand viewing” and are notified under the company`s terms of use.

This is the company`s argument that a complaint about future deletions of hypothetical content should be dismissed. You should not necessarily use only hardware-based content simply because it is impossible to have a perpetual license and access to streaming content. We live in an era of access and it is in the interest of each content provider to offer added value to the user. If you are the kind of person who benefits from the idea that you have guaranteed access to your content forever, buying physical drives (or the equivalent) is always your best option.
