Authors.... You Don't Need To Pay Someone To Get Pirated - 09/09/2012
http://www.authormedia.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif

This week, my pirate-hunting eye was drawn to a post titled "Authors: Piracy Is Not Your Enemy." http://www.authormedia.com/2009/05/20/authors-piracy-is-not-your-enemy/ In my opinion, authors do not need to pay any self-styled promotions company (that "loves helping people use technology to change the world" ), if they believe that piracy is good for business. Authors could perfectly well do a giveaway on Amazon, or on Goodreads, or on Scribd or on a myriad (which may not be an exaggeration!) other sites that are only to happy to copy and distribute "free"content for commercial benefit for themselves (not for the authors). Out of fairness, I should concede that this (IMHO) misguided advice was offered in 2009. Nevertheless, it remains "up" and no retraction has been published. Thus, one must assume that "Author Media" (Snort) still has an EFF/DOJ view of the relative value of authors' copyright vs the virtues of using expendable content...
