This was in my previous post, but decided it need it's own posting.
Would you rather make 1000 dollars by selling a thousand books at a dollar a pop, or sell 2,000 books, make 2000 dollars even if it means another 100 people don't pay for it?
We have seen this is the music industry where the artist put their product online, and even though a lot of peopel pay nothing, the band still makes more money then if they went through tradition means.
That doesn't surprise a lot of us who realized that most people who download a song from someplace that doesn't have authorization to distribute it, would never buy it anyways. I'm not saying it's right, just that is just how it is.
