Overview

THE BATTLE AGAINST INTERNET BOOK PIRACY provides an overview of the piracy crime threatening the livelihood of professional writers and the survival of many publishers, since millions of books have been stolen and made available as ebooks or PDFs for free or payments to the pirates. The cost to individual writers and the book industry has been in the billions of dollars.

This book features 26 chapters which describe:
- The extent and cost of the problem
- What writers and publishers can learn from the music and film industry battles
- What some publishers are doing to take the pirates to court
- How to find out who the pirates are
- The weapons in the arsenal to fight pirates
- What the FBI and other government agencies are doing to stop the pirates
- How to get the pirates to remove your book from their websites
- The steps writers and publishers can take now to protect their material from pirates
- And more.

In addition, a final section lists resources and major pirate sites, so writers can check if their own books have been illegally posted and report violations to other writers, publishers, and law enforcement.
