So you never ever gave a book to somebody after reading it?
Never bought a used book?
Never used a library???
Never read a book/newspaper/magazine that another person read before?
Would you please be so kind as to 'compensate' me after reading this post.
Re-reading your definition of piracy: is it ok not to compensate authors for books you read but did not enjoy?
