I don't ask the person how or where they came by their copy ... and I frankly don't care. If the publishers want me to purchase a copy, then they are more than welcome to make a legitimate ebook copy, and then I will purchase it.
That seems fair to me.
No judging here RM.......your system sounds fair, but I would probably forget what I bought and didn't buy. I think my brain has leaks........
