Since then I’ve had a fascination with pirates. In books and movies, I think that’s even why I started fencing. The word piracy to me had always been something good, almost comical (because of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) so we tend to forget why piracy is such a bad thing.
Piracy doesn’t just mean pirates with swords in the 1800’s or the hot jack sparrow. Piracy is stealing. Right now there’s a problem with e-piracy and e-books. Everyone should know that it’s WRONG. I just don’t understand how anyone could see a good side to it. An author sat down and wrote a book, most of the time it takes them YEARS to finish. Then you go and steal they’re work.
If you can’t afford to go out and buy every book you want to read, that’s okay! Just go to your local library, and if they don't have the book you want to read then REQUEST IT! The librarians there want to help you, they love to read and see people reading. I’ve requested so many books at my local library. You can also borrow E-BOOKS from many libraries now. So there is no excuse to steal someone’s hard work.
I made these button's awhile ago and they have been on my blog ever since but I recently saw this topic come up again. I thought I needed to make another post.
Feel free to use these buttons ANYWHERE! E-piracy needs to stop, people need to see how wrong it is.
