If you care about books and those who write them, say no. Every illegal download hurts that author's ability to land their next book contract. Not only is it a royalty percentege they do not receive, but it's one less sales number that determines whether their publisher will contract their next book. No sales numbers? No contract. No books. Royalties and contracts are an author's paycheck. They're how we eat, pay rent, feed families, survive. A living author's books are not Public Domain. Internet piracy hurts the publishing industry, but it hurts the author most of all. If you'd like to read free books, please use the library system. (Button courtsey of Intense Whisper)
