Likewise, If the pirated books were actually being sold, opposed to given away freely, then there would be an obvious loss of revenue to consider.
There IS a loss of revenue! If your book is given away for free, then no one is buying the book!
Yes, people always make the same tired argument that whomever would take your content for free wouldn't pay for it. I beg to differ. There have been numerous times where I've had to purchase ebooks when I couldn't find a free version for college courses. Same with a few games and some music. Free content is loss revenue.
