сетевые книги и "пиратство"

Вот очень интересная статья (англ.) Тима О'Райли, владельца известной издательской компании O'Reilly & Associates, специализирующейся на компьютерной литературе. О'Райли анализирует вопрос о "краже" книг и файлов с музыкой и приходит к весьма неортодоксальным (для издателя) выводам. Вот к каким:
Lesson 1: Obscurity is a far greater threat to authors and creative artists than piracy.
Lesson 2: Piracy is progressive taxation.
Lesson 3: Customers want to do the right thing, if they can.
Lesson 4: Shoplifting is a bigger threat than piracy.
Lesson 5: File sharing networks don't threaten book, music, or film publishing. They threaten existing publishers.
Lesson 6: "Free" is eventually replaced by a higher-quality paid service.
Lesson 7: There's more than one way to do it.
Но всю статью в любом случае советую прочитать.
