Personally, when the ebook costs more than the pbook I usually don't buy either. That is the only protest that works.
In protest I would sure love to tell publishers that although I have no problem paying the exorbitant amount they charge for a hard copy of a book here in Canada I will shamelessly download the digital copy of that same book because they should be supplying it for free with the hard copy. I will not, however, get a free digital copy of a book I didn't first buy in hard copy. I'm pretty sure my favorite authors will stop writing if they don't get paid for their work.

Did you hear that Daniel Woodrell??? I may be late in doing so but I've bought everything you wrote now get busy and write some more Rene Shade stories! I'm jonesin' for more bayou!
