Put your emotions aside, as well as try and put your morale high ground aside (like you really have one, you don't and nobody does)
lets just deal with the facts. Piracy is not going away, it doesnt matter the laws, DRM doesnt matter, nor does it matter if you bully ISP and political partys, and country's alike, to do what you want them to do, piracy will increase. There is no way to stop that.
So you can try and stand there and scream to the world with all the other copyright Nazis out there, it isn't going to mean shit, infact, it just makes me want to pirate more. If you cant handle piracy, dont write a book; go work for corporate masters like the rest of us.
As far as e-books go, i wont pay some of the ridiculous prices out there for them...they try and sell hardcover books on a ebook; think about that for a minute, the difference between hardcover and softcover on a ebook is exactly nothing expect a 100% markup price; I will pay for things, i will pay for books, games, apps (not music though, fuck the RIAA)...what i wont do is stand there and get ripped off by the next clever, yet worthless, marketing scheme.
Infact, the majority of reason why i pirate is just because i know that someone is pissed off they cant rip the public off anymore and i contribute to that, gives me a nice warm feeling.
now if your book looked creative, was cheap for a e-book (under 5.00) its easier if i just buy it...and i have bought plenty of books for 3 to 4 dollars.
