Are you talking about market stalls where people would sell pirated physical textbooks? Who in their right mind would start making xerox copies of an entire textbook and then try to sell it. Sounds like a huge waste of time.

If you're talking about a pirated ebook, then what idiot would pay for a pirated digital book when they could just go download it themselves. I think that's the point nesagwa was making. Selling a pirated digital textbook kind of defeats the purpose of putting them up on torrents in the first place.

Pirated DVDs in a market stall are physical products, we're talking about digital textbooks. Completely different thing.
