Let's I go full throttle and purchase 200 digital movies through Amazon.  They are stored under my account in their Cloud. 
Let's say 10 years from now something catastrophic occurs with Amazon and they go under. The only way for me to access those digital movies is through my Amazon.com account.  
What happens to my items that I purchased?  
I tried calling their customer service phone option, and I got a nice female who could not answer the question other than to remind that I will always have access to the digital items as long as I have an Amazon account.  I then asked what happens if Amazon no longer exists?  She said they would probably send me an email. (Yoi!) She had no idea what would be in the email.  
Any ideas?

Is there anyway to copy the files to your own online storage or download them to a hard copy if needed?

She was thinking, "If Amazon no longer exists, I'm back at Burger King.  Which might be an improvement anyway given how they treat me here.  Oh, your digital files?  Fuck you.  I wish I could wipe my ass with them and watch you eat them like I did with all those Whoppers.  Asshole."

Seriously, this is going to be a big problem in a number of years when some of these monster Internet companies go down.  Can you imagine the furor if Facebook goes under (kids already have stopped using it) and people in our generation who live their lives on it lose all their pictures and everything?  You can't rely on these companies.  A huge one hasn't gone under yet, but nothing lasts forever, and they all will eventually. 

I track all my concerts on a site called Songkick.  Years ago they allowed people to post setlists of their shows there too.  But that feature wasn't popular and they couldn't compete with setlist.fm, so one day without notice they just eliminated that option and pulled thousands of setlists down.  People who spent hours uploading setlists had a coronary.  Songkick didn't care because even though it affected a huge number of total users, it was a small number percentage-wise and wasn't going to put a dent in their traffic if there was a boycot.  One day the entire site will disappear.  This is why I track everything on my own personal Excel spreadsheet too.  And if I want a picture or anything else, I pull it from social media and save it.  Netflix eliminated the social media aspect of their site a few years back.  Same thing, big furor among those that used it, threats of boycotts, they laughed.  Hours wasted and gone forever by whoever used that feature.  All this stuff is going to disappear one day.  Don't rely on companies.  When the shit hits the fan, their users will literally be the last people they think of as they all lose their jobs or scramble to save them.  Since the Amazon content is paid for, you'll be able to join a class action lawsuit and get a check in the mail 3 years later for $1.62.

Genealogy sites have been horrible in that aspect as well, I believe for some of those features you had to pay for and after years they just disappeared.

Otherwise - just remember MySpace.

Whatever it is, if it's on the internet you could turn out to be a sucker.

PSV, I'm with Rossi on this.  Backup anything you have on Amazon that you want to keep. This is the "hook" with iTunes and Amazon. As long "as you're a customer" is the big question.

How do you back up what is on Amazon? Are you saying to record it and make a DVD copy of it? I am trying to eliminate space.

Is there any way for you to make a video file and keep it on a hard drive? I have about 7 External Hard Drives currently that have all my boxing and wrestling videos. They could all fit into one box, but have tens of thousands of hrs of video.

Yeah, I do not think I am going to change my collection from the hardware. They would need to give me some type of insurance that the items I purchased will be available if the company goes belly-up.
