Pirated Books Find Eager Thumbs
Pirated e-books include best-steller titles like "The Da Vinci Code" and "The South Beach Diet." I actually remember summer last year, when Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5) came out, it took e-book pirates less than 24hours to deliver a properly scanned e-book in any format you can think of (txt, html, pdf, prc, lit).
Main sources for illegal e-books, the article continues, are peer-to-peer file sharing systems (emule), the IRC (#Bookz), and newsgroups (alt.books.*).
Welcome to the Digital Age.

I agree that it is a problem. But even if there are ways to stop peer to peer networks, irc and newsgroups pirates always find a way to pillage and plunder.
