Piracy Where You Least Expect It

Apple is alleged to be one of the better actors when one is thinking of Big Tech and copyright infringement, and exploitation of authors and musicians.

In recent weeks, there are rumors that ebook pirates have been self publishing other authors' works on the i-Tunes or i-Books platform.

Apples has a link for authors and publishers to report piracy of their work, and Apple is promising to remove the "bad apples" (dreadful pun intended).

One hopes that EBay and Google and Facebook will be inspired to take a leaf out of Apple's book!

Facebook appears to be recommending a new site "TeamAftermind" as legitimate. If it is offering my books for free, I would say that it is a pirate site.

All the best,
