I often wonder how many "pirates" are precisely like him, bought the book, but just want to, uh, keep it? Basically keeping the copy as "proof" that he bought and paid for it.
My sister had an other rant a few day ago about not being to buy a book from one of her favorite authors, because it's geo restricted... The joy of expatriates unable to buy books from their native country...
Fight piracy starts with making sure people willing to buy can do so. And can do so easily.
