downloading something I shouldn't have

I just posted in the Calibre forum, but I accidentally downloaded some books still in copyright in the USA. I didn't notice the warning until I had downloaded a couple. What should I do?

If the books are in the public domain in your country then don't worry about it. If you're in the US, it's still very unlikely that there's anything to worry about. No one is going to come after you. I'd suggest deleting the books and forgetting about it.

Yeah. Just delete them if you aren't comfortable with illegal e-books. It's not like the e-book police are going to break into your house and say "You are arrested for downloading a couple of e-books even though it was an accident!"
