Piracy… the downside of e-books.
There is a great commentary on the evils of becoming e-book published on c-net
One would like to think that no one would be as dishonest as this implies, but there are always some.
And it wouldn’t be hard to forward a title downloaded onto a computer to your nearest friends or loved ones, would it? I guess it’s pointless asking people to remember that every book has taken hours, even years of one person’s time to write, edit and then place in the public eye. Surely they deserve the financial rewards, big or small, for that. We can but hope!
