I would LOVE it if everyone bought my books, DVD and other products, kept them, enjoyed them and recommended to everyone else that they buy their own directly from me. HOWEVER... I am fully aware that my stuff is not for everyone. So if, for example, you bought one of my books, read through, learned a few of the routines and then decided to sell it at your club's annual auction, I have nothing against you. I'm not going to comdemn you or the person you sold it to. I hope you both enjoy and can use my stuff. HOWEVER... If you photocopy my book or dub my DVD and then sell or give away either the master or the copy while keeping the other--I've got a BIG problem with you and with anyone who buys or accepts a bootleg copy. This also applies to downloads. If you buy a downloaded (PDF) routine from me, you are not authorized to make copies to sell or give away. I suppose it'd be OK with me if you could load it onto a CD and sell/give that or email it to someone, but ONLY after deleting all other copies of it from your computer and discs. If you're sending that PDF out to people--for free or for money--without then deleting your copy, or if you're sending muliple copies, you're stealing from me. So, to summarize, I have no moral/ethical problem with the authorized versions of my stuff being sold/given away in the second hand market, unless the seller/giver is keeping an unauthorized copy himself. I have a BIG problem with that as well as with selling/giving unauthorized copies. [/quote]
