Ebook Piracy Is Easy And Impossible To Stop On Google

Ebook piracy. Have your books or ebooks been pirated?

“When I released my last book , God Has Gone Fishing, I made sure not to list my new title on Google Books, due to the problems of well-known book piracy on the site.However, it made no difference at all, as the book and ebook pirates got to work very quickly without Google’s help.

Almost every book I have ever published has been pirated, BitTorrented, copied or offered under another author’s name.In an earlier post, I wrote about the problems with rampant piracy on Google Books and Google Play and how Google has taken very little action to stop the fraudulent abuse of books.

But back to more recent events, and my new book, which took almost no time at all to be pirated.I did a quick Google search for my book title and found the following sites offering my ebook on the very first search page. I didn’t bother looking any further. This was within only a few weeks of publishing my book.

Please note that I have not added links to these sites, as I refuse to give these book pirates any traffic. On top of that, going to these sites can risk getting a computer virus. Yes, they are very nasty.”
