    I received this mail today and thought to share over here as I feel it is important for us.

    "You are receiving this email because we have identified you as a user of the Amazon Product Advertising API (previously known as the Amazon Associates Web Service or the Amazon E-Commerce Web Service). If you are not aware that you use the API, that may be because you use it via a third-party script or application that calls the API.

    We wanted to let you know that all Product Advertising API developers will be required to authenticate all calls to the Product Advertising API using request signatures by August 15, 2009. Calls to the Product Advertising API that are not signed will not be processed after August 15, 2009.

    If you are not the developer of the script or application you use that calls the API, or you are unsure how you are using the API, please contact the original developer of the script or application you are using to ensure that your site or application will comply with the signed requests requirement and will continue to work after August 15 2009.

    We’d also like to take this opportunity to point out the resources available to help you make this change to your applications:

    -The Developer Guide has details on what signed requests are and how to construct signed requests.

    -Sample Code for Signed Requests is available in Java, C# and Perl.

    -Our technical staff and other customers are available to answer questions on our Community Forums.

    -Other resources can be found at the Product Advertising API home page.

    Thank you for advertising our products and we look forward to sharing the revenue from these sales."

    Waiting for some response....

    If none of you are API DEVELOPERS then there's nothing to worry about, or can do.

    I for one am confident that HubPages gets these announcements from Amazon and takes care of what needs to be taken care of.

    We've taken care of this, it's nothing that HubPages authors should concern themselves with.
