Q. I own two cars. One of them is parked in the lot in front of my apartment. Because I don’t use it very often, I have not yet renewed my license plates. Yesterday, my landlord had my car towed, and it cost me $350 to get it back. Is this legal?

Amazon has developed a well-earned reputation as a seller of goods. Originally an online book seller, Amazon diversified into consumer and institutional goods, digital books and music, and a variety of other services.

Amazon has enormous data capacity, with countless servers and related data storage located in many places around the globe.
