Well, not exactly.
My proposal partly redefines "piracy" to make legal some practices (such as having your family read your books) that are important for the social and cultural growth of people. Moreover, even today publishers grudgingly allow/tolerate at least part of this kind of practices through indirect means such as "you can load this file on no more than N devices". Some of these N usually belong to spouses, family, ...

In addition to that, my proposal reduces other types of piracy, such as those associated to "casual sharing".
