I work for Ellusionist. When customers report piracy, I either report it to have it taken down myself, or I verify it and pass it on to the legal team, if it's not something I can report myself.

Why would one need to see the scan of a book to know it had been pirated? Wouldn't the existence of the scan be enough?
No matter how many times you say the wrong thing, it will NEVER be right.

If I'm not responding to you? It's because you're a TROLL!

Because if it's not actually what it claims to be there's no grounds for action.

Lol. Are you a mathematician by any chance? Just pondering the existence of an object might suffice in a mathematical proof, but try that in court my friend and see what happens...

Ebooks are a mixed blessing and curse. They allow a solo operator to publish his ideas (or her ideas) and sell directly.


Given the availability of Print on Demand and the costs involved, I tend to disagree with this.

Amazon.com, for example, has a POD arm "Createspace". No cost for print, no miminiums etc.

If I ever got to the point of either wanting to publish any ideas, I would RUN away from PDF and head towards POD, better control, better set up.
Good Thoughts.

That is certainly not true. Createspace and any other POD company charges for printing. And those charges are very high, because POD is much more expensive than a standard print run when calculated on a per copy basis. On top you have shipping costs, deal with lost packages, returns, errors in the print, delays until it is printed and shipped. POD has its place, but it is hardly a perfect solution.

I must chime in here. I have had several of my publications released legally through Lybrary.com. All of these are totally legal. Chris is scrupulously honest about making sure the right people get the royalties.

I am aware of sites that sell bootleg copies of some of my material. I don't need to have actual copies in hand to know that this is being done. My friends tell me about them. I know who I can trust.

"It Must Be Mindreading" is page for page the best mentalist book, hands down.
