Who's Stealing eBooks?

Who's Stealing eBooks? infographic

Who’s Stealing eBooks? infographic from Who is Hosting This? looks at some of the data and opinions from experts about ebook piracy.  

Production and sales of eBooks increased rapidly in the last decade. Indie authors may have led the way, but bestsellers (and their publishers) soon joined the eBook revolution. Publishers begot lawyers;  copyrights, DRM, and royalties soon followed.

Who’s stealing eBooks, and who is paying?

What’s the future for digital rights management, and how does this affect publishers and authors? Our research into eBook piracy found some interesting statistics illustrated in the graphic.

With the release of the Cool Infographics book, I now have a personal reason to take this topic much more seriously.  As an author, of course I want as many readers as possible to be exposed to the book, but I also invested over a thousand hours writing the book and had to pass up paying design projects to get it done.

Book piracy has been around for longer than you might expect. Centuries ago, rogue publishers distributed censored texts and cheap reprints using good old-fashioned paper and ink. But today’s digital world has spawned a whole new breed of electronic book piracy and there’s a raft of new counter-measures in place to keep them at bay. thanks

Yeah I agree with the post. Writer use to do hard work to write a book moreover the time which one spend on writing a book is also wasted by such stuff. I am fully favoring this post. Moreover I will read this e-book once I will get the time.
