Link: Harry Potter e-book pirates
Harry Potter’s latest oeuvre is circulating on the Internet — as an e-book. Jerry Justianto, who runs a blog on e-publishing, has been tracking it and says it raises interesting commercial and ethical questions.
“It was available two days after the official release. That’s why it does not make sense for publishers not release a legal version. People just can scan the printed ebook. The moral question is like this: If I bought the book already can I read the pirated ebook for convenience?”
