Pirates targeting print books, writes NYT

Piracy is on the rise and publishers are increasingly worried about the impact on their business - we have heard it before. Nonetheless, check out this article from the New York Times this week which raises some interesting points.

Quote:
Book sales are down significantly, and publishers say it is difficult to determine whether electronic piracy is denting sales. Some of the most frequently uploaded books, like the “Twilight” series, are also huge best sellers.
Quote:
Others view digital piracy as a way for new readers to discover writers. Cory Doctorow, a novelist whose young adult novel “Little Brother” spent seven weeks on the New York Times children’s chapter books best-seller list last year, offers free electronic versions of his books on the same day they are published in hardcover. He believes free versions, even unauthorized ones, entice new readers.
Join the ongoing discussion over here.

Thanks to MobileReader Boston for the news!
