Amazon is keenly interested in protecting the intellectual property rights of its third-party sellers because the company depends upon them for their long-term success. In a recent newsletter to shareholders, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos explained that third-party sellers currently make up a majority of the site's gross merchandise sales, with the share of revenue from third-party sellers having grown from just 3 percent in 1999 to 58 percent today. However, Amazon has been struggling to protect its sellers from IP infringement.

It is not just the IP address that Amazon is tracking. It is a combination of email address, bank or credit card info, social security number or ETIN, and IP address.

Maybe the best solution will be to get into the witness protection program and get a whole new identity.
