just to add this:
recently, I read a blog of a german book pirate. This guy said, he believes that all the big fuzz (aka. Shitstorm) was made up. A publicity stunt. Before all this happened, no one cared (or even knew) about her book. Then, after all this copyright stuff became big news, many people talked about her.
And another, similar stunt: not too long ago, the wife of former german president wrote her autobiography. Well, "coincidentally", at the same time, rumours appeared that she worked in redlight district before her marriage. She sued several people and companies (including Google) - but she claimed that this rumours date back to 2006 ... So, just when the book was released, she started to fight all this rumours? What a coincidence ...
