The Contentious Amazon 'Used eBooks' Patent

A recent patent awarded to Amazon, 8364595, may indicate that the online retailer has plans to allow Kindle owners to sell (or return?) their digital downloads back to the store, where they will be then resold to authors. 

It has received some strong reactions from online communities.

I don't see this functionality on Amazon.com yet though. Could they have patented this to prevent others from creating such an online market?
