No, I’m not talking about Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, or Jack Davenport. I’m talking about PIRATES.
Scourge of the earth…or in this case, scourge to published authors everywhere.
It has come to my attention that there are websites out there where people have downloaded entire books and they’re actually linking other people to these books.
UMMM…HELLO…THAT IS FREAKING ILLEGAL. YOU ARE THEIVES, YOU ARE STEALING, YOU SHOULD BE SUED, ARRESTED, AND PROSCUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.
You are violating copyright laws – not just within the US, but Internationally.
STOP IT. STOP IT NOW.
If you have ever gone to one of these websites and downloaded one of these books, YOU ARE ALSO BREAKING THE LAW.
Even if you buy an e-book and forward that to someone else, YOU ARE BREAKING COPYRIGHT LAW.
Be aware people, you are stealing from the authors, the publishers, the editors, and everyone else associated with the publishing industry.
STOP IT, STOP IT NOW.
Do not visit these sites, do not partake in their thievery, and when you come across these people, TELL THEM THEY ARE BREAKING THE LAW.
