mikecane: I wonder how deeply into the DarkNet that O'Reilly piracy "study" really ventured? #TOC

mikecane: THIS is the test of piracy: Offer Harry Potter in legit eBooks. See if past pirates buy. #TOC

robotech_master: @mikecane Like that will ever happen. #toc

TylerCollins: @mikecane Faulty logic. The only relevant question is whether the legit eBooks produce greater sales overrall #toc

mikecane: "Every activity we do is social in nature." #TOC No, it's NOT. Are people buying nonsense like that? (Other word I'd like to use!!)
