San Francisco - Amazon.com has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by a high school student over the online retailer's deletion of an e-book he bought for his Kindle electronic reader.

Justin D. Gawronski, 17, sued Amazon after it erased copies of the George Orwell novels "1984" and "Animal Farm" from customers' Kindles in July. Seattle-based Amazon cited a problem with rights to the books and issued refunds to buyers.

Gawronski's suit claimed removing "1984" from his Kindle made electronic notes he had taken on the e-reader useless. He was reading "1984" for a class.

In the settlement, which was filed this week in a US District Court in Seattle, Amazon agreed that it won't remotely delete books from US users' Kindles except for in a few specified situations. A judge still has to approve the proposed deal.
