Quick Link | Pirates, You Be Bleedin’ Me Dry. Please Stop. « All Things Moorehawke and Otherwise

If you read this blog much, you’ll know I’m not a believer in the old “one download equals one lost sale” routine. However I can’r escape the moral rightness of authors and publishers who object to their material being pirated. Celine Kiernan, authors the rather excellent Moorehawk Triology, writes about her thoughts on the issue in a very frank blog post:

I’m just going to ask you to stop. Ok? Stop stealing money from my pocket, sales from my reputation, and business from the legit booksellers and sites who legally support me and others like me. If you can’t afford to buy my work then, please, go to the library – at least they keep track of how many times the books are checked out – and those reports go back to my publishers, and believe it or not, that’s important.
