Ask for money if they pirated it. I have downloaded several ebooks because I wasn't sure if the book was worth paying. If by halfway through the book, I realize it is worth the money and not junk, I'll go to the author's site and pay for it. I'm sure this is not the norm, but I'm sure a lot of good-hearted people do the same. Just a thought - some money is better than no money!
