I think Baen proved that the CD's were self pimping Baen authors works
(I know that I have bought backlist books because of the CD's and the free Library)
I can't say that she lost or gained sales, bt calling the fifth imperium a Pirate Site went over the top. The site owner abided by the publisher request to remove (it can't be called a 'take down notice', since they did have (and still do) Baens permission to post Baen CD's (except for LMB's).
I think, I will think twice about buying any author that goes off the wall like that (and I have quite a few if not all of the Miles stories, either in Analog SF/F or Baen).
