Can this be legal?

Whilst searching the net for an ebook subscription service available service and stumbled upon this website [deleted]. It doesn't look legit but I can't help wondering why it hasn't been taken down. What do you guys reckon?

Definitely not legit. I've deleted the link.

For those who can't be bothered to trawl the website, it basically offers 1 or 2 ebooks a month from the WHS bestsellers chart or their library for a fee of £12.50 or £18.50 a year. It claims that these are genuine copies and not pirated. You can also by a trial membership from ebay for £6 for 4 ebooks.

I didn't think so, how is it that it's still active and not been shut down? Is there someone you complain to?

Now why would anyone want to pay for pirated versions of e-books ? The url might as well be deleted. Nobody needs such a website.

It could be a small time operation and not on the publishers radar. It most likely is hosted in a foreign country and could take some legal wrangling to get a judge to order a take down.
