How To Fight eBook Piracy

Pirated copies of Stephen King‘s print-only Joyland are already circulating online.

If you think book piracy is hurting your book sales, you can confront pirates online by using the tools listed in our Five Ways To Fight Book Pirates post at AppNewser.

At the same time, a few GalleyCat readers suggested that authors engage with pirates instead of taking legal action…

Reader MaxEd had a different strategy: “you can stop worrying about piracy. Join those sites you’ve found in step 1&2, start a polite conversation in comments, get free publicity, sell more copies, make people feel good.”

Reader P. Bradley Robb added: “I like how you leave out the part about engaging with pirates, asking them if they liked the book and using the initial experience to foster future business relationships.”
