The whole situation of e-book piracy

Why do pirates pirate and what do they profit from offering free download?
Online piracy comprising of free movies, music, and software and of course, e-books is all but a stake. The catch is that a host of legitimate and authorized companies can make a profit with link building and advertising in these sites which has huge traffic and revenue because of the free content being offered, that in the meantime the advertisers can find a bigger audience. Advertising and link building are hot tactics of internet business and marketing, which is the process of doing business that is taking over the physical market. The more a brand is seen in the internet, the better for their integration.
To some extent it does work, that pirates can benefit from the advertisements. Even if the links are directly not clicked by many skeptical readers, the sites and the business do get bulk customers from this stake which so if works, then garners huge profit that can be enjoyed by the advertisers, the advertising brands and the pirates, but not the publishers or the creators. And if the stake doesn’t work then there is no loss but it all ends up in proper altruism with a consumer getting free stuff.
“Download for free” is the key reason why online piracy thrives, and perhaps it won’t be wrong to say that these are the websites that grab the biggest traffic. The process hasn’t yet caused any major damage, but it certainly worries the creators and distributers of intellectual property to lose their review.
Some way or the other piracy is encouraged by different sources that are bulkier than the body that is discouraging it. There are a number of Government bills and orders against online piracy which a cyber crime, and a punishable offense.
The community of writers and readers are huge and it is still a highly valued market. Books are read, the music is listened to, and the celebrities are celebrated. But when one can save on the bulk expense of actually buying a volume while the same can be available for downloading for free of cost? Can we rely on human nature to say no to piracy? Human psychology is a different subject. But here and now the fact is NO. Readers would not say no to piracy when it is available on the net for free.
So it can’t depend on human nature that a source of a self publishing house and the writer of a book per se the copyright holders of it will strive to get the deserving benefits of their own creation. The war with internet pirates and copyright infringement has so far been lost as free e-books continue to be downloaded.

"Private enterprise, indeed, became too private. It became privileged enterprise, not free enterprise." – Frankin Roosevelt

"The hours men and women worked, the wages they received, the conditions of their labor — these had passed beyond the control of the people, and were imposed by this new industrial dictatorship. The savings of the average family, the capital of the small-businessmen, the investments set aside for old age — other people’s money — these were tools which the new economic royalty used to dig itself in. Those who tilled the soil no longer reaped the rewards which were their right. The small measure of their gains was decreed by men in distant cities. Throughout the nation, opportunity was limited by monopoly. Individual initiative was crushed in the cogs of a great machine. The field open for free business was more and more restricted. Private enterprise, indeed, became too private. It became privileged enterprise, not free enterprise." From Speech to the Democratic National Convention (1936)

NOTE: After experiencing the day of protest about SOPA/PIP it is clear that the action could better be called a Web Blackout rather than a Strike.

The Emerging Dilemma Of Ebook Piracy

We’ve all heard about the plagues that face the music and movie industry with respect to digital piracy. Ever since the advent of MP3s, free music has been abundantly available to those who choose to download their music at no cost.

By choosing to get the music for free, such as on a platform for sharing files or a torrent website, this definitely puts a hurting on the sales of a lot of artists. The same is true with the movie industry when the movies are recorded first by movie pirates before they upload them to the sharing platforms.

Most recently, it seems like this problem has spread to yet another medium. All of a sudden, e-books are now being shared via this means and it seems that the issue may be growing.

So many books are being put in digital form and it is quite easy to get them by going to a torrent or file sharing site and downloading them illegally without paying anything.

Tablet PCs and the Kindle are pretty popular digital mediums that enable the proliferation of the books through digital means.

This could potentially be a sharp blow to the publishing industry, and people should really consider their actions before taking part in such illegal activity.

Writers are only able to spend the time researching and writing their works because of the sales they can expect down the line. If the industry takes a hit, we may be left with a world devoid of much high quality writing as a result.

It is my belief that almost all of us do realize that we would surely be in a bad position if that should occur, so the best thing to do is to stop this illegal activity if you are doing it.

Throughout the second quarter of 2009, e-book sales went above $ 37 million and, because of that, regulators are going to be made to deal with this issue as the use of e-books keeps growing and growing.

Besides publishing, the writer additionally regularly contributes articles on metal storage shelves and glass display shelves.
