Pirating the Harry Potter books is not damaging anyone's sales, because there are no digital versions to buy.
I personally find it problematic how some corporations/organizations define that a download equals a lost sales. It could of course be seen as a smart move on their side to make things look more bleek so that they'll in turn gain more political leverage, ect. It might even be used as a propaganda tool to harden the hearts of people against people who downloads illegally.
I really don't think this is a good practical strategy as people such as myself are disgust by this manipulation/propaganda of theirs. And don't get me started on the filthy, outrageous lawsues against teenagers/young folks that have no chance in hell
to pay these fines back(if they still do this. I haven't read about a case in some time now).
