My account was terminated last Saturday. Yesterday I found out that Amazon is still selling all of my books. My friend even purchased a couple of them. I have called Amazon and no answer. Books are still being sold. How do I take legal action.

I do not want to judge if this is ethical or not, but could it be that Amazon has decided that your books are not your intellectual property? Why was your account terminated?

My account was blocked too at one point and my books were still being sold. However, it was only for a week and they were credited to my account.

Are you still able to access all the reports? If you can and continue to see sales then that means you'll still get paid. At least that was how it was for me.

Just work with the KDP staff and you can have a pretty good chance of getting your account back maybe.

Ok good. Most likely you'll receive any money you made when your account was blocked. I know they don't take books down immediately sometimes.

So as long as this is the first account you have then you haven't violated the TOS in such a way to warrant Amazon to keep all your profits. In short you'll still get paid for this period.

Hope that helps!
