They deserve to be lambasted for making false accusations.

Or is the point of this thread to discuss whether or not the functions contained within lendink were piracy or not, IMO if the author is not compensated for each reader who has enjoyed what the author has wrote, then that is a pirate read.
What's to discuss? It wasn't piracy.

Your claim that authors should be paid for each person who reads the book doesn't match your insistence on not paying for books.

Quote:
Whether or not the author has chosen to lend or not lend their books is irrelevant.
On the contrary, it is 100% relevant. If an author allows the book to be loaned, the author has no grounds for complaint if the book is loaned. The authors freely chose to allow lending. You could forbid authors selling their works, thus it does make sense that you would find irrelevant the agreements the authors made. After all, only the decrees of the book commissar mean anything...
