I understand artists only get pennies. Frankly, I get nothing from my books, but they are expensive for the publisher to produce. My money for my end comes from other sources, but without sales, the publisher would not publish them. Way back I suggested making the books available for free online, but overwhelmingly the readers want these books on archival grad paper with library bindings. That doesn't happen without people coughing up money. It is immaterial that little of the money comes back to me - without the publisher there to put print and distribute the books, the fact is I wouldn't be able to produce them and they would be lost to the scholarly world.

Because as I mentioned, "sharing" is a feel-good term that makes it sound other than what it is. Remember, we were all taught in kindergarten that it's good to share.

Similarly, as I also said, there's a convenience-store robbery connotation to the word "stealing" and that's why opponents like that word.
Copyright violation has a boring, lawyerly sound to it which, if your goal is level-headed discussion, is a good thing.
