A question for our legal folk: When is plunking the batter a tort?
Six bucks raises the question of how much old fiction should be worth. With slightly more effort, if you know where to look, you can (illegally) download the book for free.
I occasionally wonder about how things get online. A friend of mine wrote a $120 textbook. A month after it was published I showed her the PDF file I had obtained (illegally) online. It was a byte-for-byte duplicate of the final file sent from the publisher to the printer.
