feedback on copyright/disclaimer page?

It's a novel and this is what I've got:

This ebook is licensed for your personal enjoyment only. This ebook may not be re-sold or given away to other people. If you would like to share this book with another person, please purchase an additional copy for each recipient. If you’re reading this book and did not purchase it, or it was not purchased for your use only, then please purchase your own copy. Thank you for respecting the hard work of this author.

The characters and events in this book are fictitious. Any similarity to real persons, living or dead, is coincidental and not intended by the author.

I'm okay w/ the character one, but, I don't know, the first part (from the Smashwords guide) just seems wimpy: please buy my book; I worked hard on it.

Anybody got anything better?

thanks

Bear

"Captain Jack might be cool, but you certainly are not you sniveling piece of deep fried dung! Piracy does not help ANYONE...and how am I supposed to feed my 10 kids when you keep steeling from me? I hope you rot in the deepest, slimiest pit of hell...and then DON'T even get the privilege of coming back as a somewhat cool Walking Dead zombie!!

For those who didn't pirate this - nevermind..."




That would at least get their attention...give them a little humor and they might not ignore it like they ignore all the other dry notices. They may even respect the attempt and go purchase the book!!

Sigil has no problem creating either of those copyright/disclaimer pages. But it seems to have no opinion as to their quality or effectiveness. I've asked it nicely and........ nothing. Not a peep.

You could've left me hanging out to dry there, but you didn't. Such considerate movers of threads around here.

Thanks for reading. If you downloaded this from somewhere without paying for it, please consider supporting the author in some way if you derived any entertainment from it.

You don't need to buy your own copy (though it would be great if you did, of course). There are lots of other ways you can support struggling writers. Leave a review on Amazon, mention it on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, anywhere else you think it might be useful.

No one reads the copy right page, so do not worry about it. I am being serious. Most E-Readers make it extra work to even see that page. Leave it the way you have it and move on. What is in the book will determine if it will be a success - the copyright page will have no impact at all.

Simply put, pirates will not care, and legit buyers will likely never read it.

Not quite true, I often look to see the copyright/publication date. But you're right the rest of the text is irrelevant for the most part.
