most likely if the banner for the nook is from a sponsor program, there probably was also an agreement not to run advertising on a file sharing site. eventually - when the program finds out what site the ad is running on - they will terminate the affiliate's account.

Thanks. Now it makes sense.

Over there you may not have heard of "The Mickey Mouse Protection Act".

"In addition to Disney (whose extensive lobbying efforts inspired the nickname "The Mickey Mouse Protection Act")...."

This whole copyright thing confuses me. Can someone explain that wikipedia article in plain English?

Things that have already entered public domain remain so.

Things that haven't entered public domain and were published before 1978 (but after 1923) can't be released until 95 years after they were published, correct, unless the owner renewed the copyright, correct?

I don't understand these draconian rules. Why should someone 90 years after the death of the author benefit from the author's work? Seriously?

I really can't see how theft of income comes into piracy...

I'd love to buy books for my readers, but they don't want to sell them to me...

For now I'm OK, but should something be published, which I could not live without, I would have to have a way through the darknet...

Also the darknet can't be that 'dark', if it's supported by advertising.

Its honestly the Walt Disney rule. Disney made billions making public domain stories into movies, but they don't want any of their characters going into the public domain. Lots of books are lost completely because they aren't public domain and publishers have no interest in putting them in print. Sad situation in the US.

Not always. Some copyright extensions have been retroactive.
