[edit] ASIN

All Amazon products have an Amazon Standard Identification Number, ASIN, assigned including eBooks. For eBooks it is actually contained inside the file itself and is used to distinguish an Amazon supplied eBook from one you built yourself. Its location has been found as shown in the MOBI page. The number is unique across all of Amazon but if the user is fast enough or reuses it on their eBooks it will be the same number in Amazon sites in different countries.
