Not sure about the statistics in Western cultures; it's why I referred to the Internet rather than to specific countries. On the Internet, it's relatively easy to see how "free" e-books have gained popularity... whether you look at torrents, newsgroups, or IRC - the volume of available e-books of all kinds has increased substantially over the past few years.
