DISCUSSION

Not really 100% on topic here, but question for you all... why don't we hear more about "book piracy"?

I can't throw a rock without hitting a story on music & movie downloads. But ebooks should be a fraction of the size, and easy to transfer thousands of them in the same time as a single movie.

What's the story here? Did it just not catch on?
