Amazon & Ebooks and Pirates

Postby crit25037 » Sat Apr 02, 2011 3:20 am

This is something I've had my eye on the last few days, but you can follow this on twitter yourself:

In short, this fellow self-published a book. Then a pirate comes along and puts it up on Amazon pretending to be the author, selling it at $5 a copy. :)

What's most interesting of course is how Amazon is reacting to this. They still haven't removed the pirated copy, though they have (finally) let the original author put up a copy of his own. Gee, thx Amazon. ;)
