The Affero version of GPLv3 fixes that, not? However, it still wouldn't make a difference - GPL only requires you to make code available, including your changes; it would not block Amazon from hosting it on their cloud and profiting from it. The GPL always made it very explicit that making money as a third party was not only allowed, it was in a sense even encouraged; as long as you play ball and share your code changes back to the common code base.
