Books piracy is not just illegal because you are copying someone else’s work but also because it is a form of stealing. A book isn’t written in days but rather it takes months or even years most of the time. The money you are making from these pirated books is the rightful money of the author who is the mastermind behind that brilliant book.
Getting a book published is not as easy as writing an article on MS Word and then clicking on the print option. It requires time, effort, energy, and sometimes the writer goes days without eating or sleeping properly because all they are thinking is how to make the best out of their book. When it finally gets published and there happens to be a high demand all these predators making money through books piracy, grabs a copy and gets on with making pirated copies and sells them cheaply. They cover their wrong deed by saying they are providing inexpensive books so more people can read but say whatever, any copy made without the permission of the author or the publishing company is a form of stealing.
My request to these companies is to stop making money out of pirated books. It is totally wrong and this is not what the authors deserve for all their hard work. You can instead earn money by opening a library and purchasing original copies of books.
Also, readers should stop supporting these businesses. In my next blog post I will come up with tips for readers to read books without supporting these types of businesses.
