Yes, a black flag in my case.
The information in books is nonscarce, in that it can be replicated at very little cost. It will be economically infeasible to try to stop distribution. The best way for you to get the upper hand is to come out as the legitimate, moral author of this; publicly and for yourself. You should set up a website and come out with a suggested fee for donations. There are other ideas too, like having previews and/or early releases for subscribers.
Of course you would still charge for the dead-tree book. Take a look at what Stefan Molyneux has been doing at www.freedomainradio.com. He lives entirely off the donations and subscriptions.
Hope this helps

Don't take me wrong. I believe Copyrights and patents are not real property. This has really nothing to do with the legality of downloading and watching The Origins Movie, but with company policy and the internal, private penalties you incur, such as getting fired.
It's like some McDonald's manager praising the Whopper....
It's not like it's 1995 anymore....
This post is so misleading and so wrong... you managed to put together all the fallacies there are about intellectual property.
Please take a look at this, and start forgetting about the labor theory of value (or property)
Nah, me too. It was about time someone would come out with an ARM netbook.
Reminds me of the stories about Andrew Galambos. He was nuts about IP, at the point of changing his name because it was the same as his father's.
He's been rightfully forgotten, but if anyone wants to take a peek at how brain-dead this whole IP thing is, here's a famous essay by Harry Browne.
