How were they a pirate site though, that is what we are asking. Did they simply download best seller torrents and try to resell them or did they accumulate copies of best sellers through legal means and then try to resell them? This is the distinction we are currently thinking about.
For instance, most print best sellers are available used through amazon for a bit more than it costs to ship the book itself, with ebooks the cost of shipping is negligible.
