Meet the pirate queen making academic papers free online - The Verge
The publisher Elsevier owns over 2,500 journals covering every conceivable facet of scientific inquiry to its name, and it wasn’t happy about either of the sites. Elsevier charges readers an average of $31.50 per paper for access; Sci-Hub and LibGen offered them for free. But even after receiving the “YOU HAVE BEEN SUED” email, Elbakyan was surprisingly relaxed. She went back to work. She was in Kazakhstan. The lawsuit was in America. She had more pressing matters to attend to, like filing assignments for her religious studies program; writing acerbic blog-style posts on the Russian clone of Facebook, called vKontakte; participating in various feminist groups online; and attempting to launch a sciencey-print T-shirt business.

That 2015 lawsuit would, however, place a spotlight on Elbakyan and her homegrown operation. The publicity made Sci-Hub bigger, transforming it into the largest Open Access academic resource in the world. In just six years of existence, Sci-Hub had become a juggernaut: the 64.5 million papers it hosted represented two-thirds of all published research, and it was available to anyone.

Germany’s Supreme Court rules that ISPs can be ordered to block piracy websites | Ars Technica
Germany's Supreme Court has ruled that an ISP can be required to block sites that infringe on copyright, even though the ISP has no relationship with them. However, this is subject to two conditions: before seeking an order that requires ISPs to block a website, the copyright holders must have explored all other avenues, for example contacting the operators of the site in question and the Web hosting company. In addition, Web blocks can only be used for sites which "on balance" have more illegal than legal content. However, the court did not provide any guidelines for how that balance would be judged.

Ebooks are unfamiliar waters for digital pirates, according to UK survey | Books | The Guardian
Kantar Media, which carried out the research, estimates that 7.8m, or 18%, of UK internet users aged 12 or over have accessed at least one piece of online content illegally over the period, with 6% exclusively consuming illegal content. When researchers looked at “all internet users who consumed content online over the three-month period,” (rather than all internet users over 12), they found that 31% accessed at least one item illegally. Readers, however, still had the lowest incidence of illegal access, at 11%, compared to 25% for people watching films and 26% for people listening to music. “More ebook consumers paid for some content (69%) and for all of their content (47%) than consumers of any other content type”, the survey found.

Après l’industrie de la musique et du film, celle du livre se confronte aujourd’hui à la question du piratage. La progression de l’offre pirate et des pratiques de téléchargement illégal, dont les contours restent complexes à saisir, semble accompagner le développement du marché du livre numérique. À un moment où de nombreux professionnels du secteur redoutent une massification du phénomène, un état des lieux s’impose. Dans quelles directions se déploie le piratage de livres numériques ?

Piratage : arrestation des responsables d'OMG Torrent
Nouveau coup de filet dans le petit monde du partage de liens torrent illégaux en France. Cette fois, la gendarmerie s'est penchée sur le cas du site OMG Torrent, suite à un signalement de l’association de lutte contre la piraterie audiovisuelle (ALPA) et de la société des auteurs compositeurs et éditeurs de musique (Sacem). Deux de ses responsables ont été arrêtés et placés en garde à vue dans la Marne et dans l’Eure par les gendarmes de la section de recherche de Reims. Les plaignants leur reprochent la mise à disposition de liens permettant de télécharger illégalement des milliers de films, 5200 séries, et près de 700 albums de musique. Le site, hébergé en Roumanie génère 3,5 millions de visiteurs par mois.

There will be 700 Million Pirated e-Books in 2018
Many publishers often think their current Digital Rights Management solutions are enough to combat e-book piracy. This is why the vast majority end up using Digital Watermarks or Adobe DRM in order to make it hard to upload material you have purchased to file sharing websites. Rightscorp, likely the biggest anti-piracy player in movies, music and television shows told Good e-Reader that “we estimate that there were 500 million e-Books distributed in the United States on peer-to-peer networks in 2013 and this will grow to 700 million by 2018.” Rightscorp has developed digital loss prevention technology that tracks copyright infringement and ensures that owners and creators are rightfully paid for their IP. They developed extensive tracking analytics that allows them to see what content is being distributed through Bittorrent and file sharing sites and then goes after the people involved. In April 2014 they made the company decision to market their services to the publishing industry

Publishing: Spotify for books | The Economist
Most subscription services have agreed to pay publishers each time a reader gets a certain way into a book—typically around 10%—and the fees are about the same as if they had sold it as a one-off download. This makes the subscription services’ business model similar to that of gyms, says Andrew Rhomberg, an e-book expert: they are relying on lots of people signing up but not making much use of the service. The record companies tolerate music-streaming services like Spotify, which pay them only modest fees, because the alternative is a continued rise in music piracy—on which they earn nothing at all. However, piracy of e-books is not such a problem: it is perfectly feasible for publishers to keep back some titles from subscription services and make money by selling individual copies of them.

$2 Billion and Counting
Taylor Swift is absolutely right: music is art, art has real value, and artists deserve to be paid for it. We started Spotify because we love music and piracy was killing it. So all the talk swirling around lately about how Spotify is making money on the backs of artists upsets me big time. Our whole reason for existence is to help fans find music and help artists connect with fans through a platform that protects them from piracy and pays them for their amazing work. Quincy Jones posted on Facebook that “Spotify is not the enemy; piracy is the enemy”. You know why? Two numbers: Zero and Two Billion. Piracy doesn’t pay artists a penny – nothing, zilch, zero. Spotify has paid more than two billion dollars to labels, publishers and collecting societies for distribution to songwriters and recording artists. A billion dollars from the time we started Spotify in 2008 to last year and another billion dollars since then.

Piracy Takedown Notices Increase E-Book Sales, Research Finds | TorrentFreak
Takedown notices for pirated books can be quite effective in some cases, new research shows. The extensive study reveals that these anti-piracy measures can increase e-book sales by 15 percent. Other book formats are unaffected, and interestingly the results also indicate that lesser-known authors may benefit from piracy.

In an attempt to limit the availability of pirated content, copyright holders send millions of takedown requests to online services every week.

The effectiveness of these anti-piracy measures is often in doubt, since the pirated files usually reappear quickly elsewhere. But, according to new research they do have some effect.

That’s a lot of pirating: 68% of Europeans download or stream movies for free — Tech News and Analysis
How much illegal streaming and downloading is going on in the European Union? A report on film-watching habits released last week by the European Commission suggests that it’s quite a lot. 4,608 people ages 4 to 50 from 10 European countries were surveyed. Nearly all — 97 percent — say they watch movies at least occasionally. 68 percent of them say they download or stream movies for free, and about half of that group (34 percent of respondents overall) do so weekly.

The Publishing Industry is Thriving | New Republic
It's not clear whether the situation changed, or if there was something strategic behind the publishers' cries of poverty. What does seem certain is that, despite their legal setbacks, the major houses have done their part to uphold the value of the book in readers' eyes. When those publishers came up with the pricing scheme that landed them in trouble, it wasn't a grab for short-term profit; the details are technical, but the upshot was that the companies actually collect less money for every e-book sold. What they gained in the bargain was the preemptive power to prevent Amazon from lowering prices to unsustainable levels. It was a long-term play to protect the worth of their product—so that, even if the whole business does eventually go digital, there will be enough value built in to support the books of the future.

Ministry of Sound: 'It is time that Spotify's actions are held to account' | Technology |
According to BPI annual figures, UK record company revenues in 2011 were £795m. Total paying UK Spotify customers at that point could be reasonably estimated to be no more than 250,000. At £10 a month that's total net income of £25m. About 55% of this is paid through to record companies, £13.75m - less than 2% of total industry income. Even by generously assuming paying users doubled in 2012, Spotify's contribution still only amounts to 3.5% of total industry income.

Publishing: Springer Says Piracy Doesn’t Harm eBook Sales | LJ INFOdocket
Boasting a collection of tens of thousands of eBooks, Springer is one of the larger publishers dealing with this emerging threat.
To show what they’re doing to prevent the unauthorized distribution of eBooks, the company has recently updated its anti-piracy strategy. Like most other copyright holders, Springer is mainly focused on sending takedown requests.
In order to protect our authors´ rights and interests, Springer proactively screens websites for illegal download links of Springer eBooks and subsequently requires hosts of such download sites to remove and delete the files or links in question,” they write.
The sentence that follows, however, is perhaps of even more interest. While the company admits that piracy is a serious issue, they have yet to see any evidence that it hurts their business (emphasis added).

The Administration strongly supports voluntary efforts by the private sector to reduce infringement and we welcome the initiative brought forward by the companies to establish industry-wide standards to combat online piracy and counterfeiting by reducing financial incentives associated with infringement. We believe that this is a positive step and that such efforts can have a significant impact on reducing online piracy and counterfeiting.

Major Book Publishers Demand Identities of Usenet Uploaders | TorrentFreak
Some of the world’s largest book publishers are going after two prolific Usenet uploaders. The publishers have obtained subpoenas from a federal court in the District of Columbia which require major Usenet providers to reveal their customers’ identities. Thus far legal action against Usenet users has been relatively rare, but the documents suggest that the publishers are preparing just that. Lawsuits against individual file-sharers are nothing new in the United States. In recent years hundreds of thousands have been accused of sharing copyrighted material.

The core reason is this: if you can buy an eBook from any source and be certain that you can read it on any device, you are less likely to feel you have to live within a given ecosystem, whether it is Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Nook, Apple or a local Dutch-language platform. In markets with fixed-price or agency agreements, this gives publishers a chance to compete with platforms for direct sales.

Assessing the Academic Literature Regarding the Impact of Media Piracy on Sales by Michael Smith, Rahul Telang :: SSRN
The goal of this paper is to provide a “non­‐technical” discussion of what the academic literatures in economics, marketing, and information systems can tell us about how piracy impacts sales of media products. Within these literatures, we have chosen to focus on empirical studies of the impact of piracy because, while there are a variety of analytic models proposing theories of how piracy might impact sales, we believe that the true test of these theories starts with data.

Based on our review of the empirical literature we conclude that, while some papers in the literature find no evidence of harm, the vast majority of the literature (particularly the literature published in top peer reviewed journals) finds evidence that piracy harms media sales.

Do Hamsters Pirate Books? « The Scholarly Kitchen
Whether or not piracy hurts book sales is hotly debated in some circles. For publishers, this is a no-brainer, but the evidence for this is not always clear. I have been sifting through the arguments about this for some time now and have concluded that at least in one area, college textbooks, piracy hurts sales. I am not yet persuaded that this is the case for other areas, trade books in particular, and would like to learn more about the circumstances of piracy for those segments.

DRM, Pricing and How We Can Help Piracy End Itself | Publishing Perspectives
The (early) evidence from Pottermore’s experience suggests that social DRM with proper pricing is the way to go. I sincerely believe this to be correct — within two years very few e-books will be sold with “hard” DRM. Publishers like O’Reilly already offer .mobi files that are directly compatible with the Kindle. If more publishers went this route, they could circumvent Amazon as retail channel, while still making books available to consumers with a Kindle.

$7,000 Fine for Sharing “WordPress For Dummies” on BitTorrent | TorrentFreak
Judge William Pauley entered a default judgement of $7,000 in damages against Robert Carpenter, who failed to respond to the allegations. The man from Poughkeepsie, New York, has been found guilty of a unique combination of both copyright and trademark infringement.

To our knowledge, this is the first time that sharing files on BitTorrent has been viewed as counterfeiting, a description that’s usually reserved for fake goods sold as the real deal.

For the copyright violations Carpenter has to pay $5,000 in damages plus another $2,000 for the counterfeiting. This is relatively mild compared to the allowed maximum statutory damages of $150,000 Wiley asked for.

“Judgement shall be entered in favor of Wiley and against Carpenter for damages in the amount of $7,000, representing $5,000 in statutory damages pursuant to 17 U.S.C 504 (c) for Carpenter’s infringement of Wiley’s copyright, and $2,000 in statutory damages pursuant to 17 U.S.C 504 (c) for Carpenter’s counterfeiting of Wiley’s Tr

Letter to Emily White at NPR All Songs Considered. | The Trichordist
I’ve been teaching college students about the economics of the music business at the University of Georgia for the last two years. Unfortunately for artists, most of them share your attitude about purchasing music. There is a disconnect between their personal behavior and a greater social injustice that is occurring. You seem to have internalized that ripping 11,000 tracks in your iPod compared to your purchase of 15 CDs in your lifetime feels pretty disproportionate. You also seem to recognize that you are not just ripping off the record labels but you are directly ripping off the artist and songwriters whose music you “don’t buy”. It doesn’t really matter that you didn’t take these tracks from a file-sharing site. That may seem like a neat dodge, but I’d suggest to you that from the artist’s point of view, it’s kind of irrelevant.

Now, my students typically justify their own disproportionate choices in one of two ways. I’m not trying to set up a “strawman”, but I do have a lot of an

A few random points on DRM – Baldur Bjarnason
DRM works, in some contexts such as software.
One of the advantages of software and apps is that you can apply different forms of copy control for each product or even for each release, catered to the needs of each product.
Big budget games have extremely front-loaded sales (most of it in the first few weeks) and so heavy-handed DRM actually makes economic sense. It doesn’t have to last forever, just over the initial sales bump.
An app can try lesser or greater forms of copy controls in each release and do a detailed analysis of which one is the most cost effective and which is cheaper.
A long-standing title can change the copy controls in the next release if the early one is broken.
Software defines its own behaviour and, as a result, they have much more flexibility in how they apply copy controls.
The problems with applying DRM to ebooks is that they don’t work in the same way as software.

Hadopi : Pierre Lescure chargé d'une concertation
Pierre Lescure, 66 ans, devrait piloter la commission de concertation sur Hadopi, la Haute Autorité de lutte contre le téléchargement illégal. L'ancien patron de Canal+, actuel directeur du Théâtre Marigny, sera chargé de mettre en place cette instance afin d'entendre tous les acteurs de la filière et les consommateurs, a appris mardi 22 mai Le Monde de source gouvernementale.

La ministre déléguée chargée des PME et de l'économie numérique, Fleur Pellerin, avait indiqué dimanche que la concertation "sera lancée avant l'été, prendra le temps qu'il faudra pour écouter ce que chacun aura à dire et prendra moins de six mois". Dans son programme, le candidat François Hollande avait annoncé qu'en cas d'élection il remplacerait la loi Hadopi par "une grande loi signant l'acte II de l'exception culturelle française", conciliant "la défense des droits des créateurs" et "un accès aux œuvres par Internet facilité et sécurisé".

Thinking Through a Strategy for Digital Rights Management « The Scholarly Kitchen
Publishers are faced with a few broad options (but countless sub-options):

They can play hardball and fight infringement at every turn. This more or less is the current situation for most, though definitely not all, publishers. Let’s call this the legal enforcement strategy.
They can play softball and learn to tolerate a certain degree of file-sharing, punctuated with the occasional outburst (e.g., the targeted lawsuit against a major infringer) to restore some friction to the economy. Some publishers are gravitating to this position now. Let’s call this the editorial strategy, with publishers being highly selective about asserting their positions, but insisting on their prerogatives whether or not they are asserted.
They can move to a strategy of full engagement. They can appeal to their readers in various ways, be responsive to their questions and challenges, and portray their company as being a part of the civic infrastructure. We can call this the NPR strategy.

Ce combat contre le partage frauduleux d’œuvres littéraires sur le Net s’inscrit dans un long processus de défense des droits d’auteur dont témoigne par ailleurs la fermeture en janvier de Megaupload, qui proposait entre autres à ses internautes des milliers de copies numérisées de livres français. Véritables librairies virtuelles, et offraient aux internautes en téléchargement illégal, gratuit, et anonyme près de 400 000 eBooks haute résolution, générant ainsi, grâce aux publicités, aux donations, et aux comptes premium de leurs adhérents, près de 8 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires.

Cette proposition de loi est soutenue par l'industrie musicale et cinématographique, mais combattue par les grands acteurs de l'internet.

Study finds piracy withering against legal alternatives • The Register
A study has found that people are perfectly prepared to pay for online content, provided that the alternatives aren’t too harsh.

The data, from respected think-tank American Assembly, shows that illegal file sharing among family and friends is relatively common – but that people would prefer to use a legal alternative if one was available at the right price and usage point. So far the data suggests that streaming music services are getting this right, but users are still unwilling to accept the current range of video streaming offerings at the current price and convenience points.

“There is ethics at work in these decisions,” Joe Karaganis, vice president of the American Assembly told The Register. “However, it’s overridden by price and convenience. All other things being equal, people prefer to obey the law.”

What if piracy does sell more content? | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics
It’s sort of a glass-half-full versus glass-half-empty kind of thing. In the 100 vs. 1,000 + 9,000 example above, some people would be inclined to say, “Hey, great, I sold 1,000 copies instead of 100!” But others would only be able to see the 9,000 they weren’t paid for.

I’m not going to go so far as to say illicit sharers and downloaders are right to do what they’re doing, but what if they’re also buying more legitimate works because of it? Perhaps content creators should consider whether they can bear the insult to their dignity of someone reading their work “for free” if it actually does end up helping them sell more.

How Viral PDFs Of A Naughty Bedtime Book Exploded The Old Publishing Model | Fast Company
The multi-billion-dollar question, though, is this: When does piracy work to a publisher's benefit, and when does it work to its detriment? If Go the Fuck to Sleep weren't a children's book of sorts, would parents be so eager for hard-copy versions? Or if it didn't have its irresistible illustrations? Books with artwork have a tactile, archival appeal lacking in the latest Grisham potboiler, say.

Neil Gaiman and other prominent authors have gone on the record as essentially supporting the piracy of their own work as a way of building a fanbase. But to what extent did Gaiman's pre-existing fame act as the necessary ignition to the fire of profitable piracy?

This is fertile ground for research. Publishers should scrutinize the mechanics of e-book piracy, replaying success stories like this one over and over again in slow motion, in an effort to see just what combination of variables caused the pirate's cutlass to land directly into a giant sack of doubloons.

Dear Hachette, you’re doing it wrong
What would explain Hachette’s fear-based approach to ebooks? I have a feeling it has a lot to do with where Hachette’s executives are getting their news from these days. Attributor’s business model depends on selling anti-piracy services and consulting to publishers. To sign up new clients, it has to convince them that piracy is one of the four horsemen on the apocalypse. Here’s a different take from someone who tried to check out the company’s findings, and who concluded that “Attributor ebook piracy numbers don’t add up.” (...)

But what I’d like to point out, one more time and just in case someone from Hachette reads this, is that every pirate isn’t a customer, and every customer isn’t a pirate.
Although sometimes, if you do everything wrong, you can make those two groups overlap a little more.

E-book piracy may have unexpected benefits for publishers - Technology & Science - CBC News
So, if book publishers want to avoid some of the piracy issues that have plagued the music, movie, and television industries, what should they do?

It seems to me that they need to better understand the real impact of piracy. They need to understand the motivations behind piracy, and they need to address the appetites of underserved customers.

"I think the average consumer cares about getting the content that they want, when they want it, in the format that they want, without a lot of overhead, at a reasonable price," says Brian O'Leary. "I think that publishers who realize that and organize their work and their publishing strategies to address those needs are going to succeed."

E-books, both purchased and pirated, are on a serious uptick. The challenges around piracy are huge, but so are the opportunities.

At Frankfurt's Tools of Change conference 18 months ago trade publishers caused a stink when they decided that a panel on piracy, following research by Magellan's Brian O'Leary was sending out the wrong signals: that piracy could actually boost sales. O'Leary retorted that the consumer publishers should fund proper research or at least join his research panel: but as far as I know this has not yet happened.

And at the moment the evidence is all pointing in the other direction. Sales of e-books are rising faster than anyone's expectations, on both sides of the pond. Kindle and Nook users are buying more, while digital hits are driving rather than undermining print bestsellers.

The evidence of piracy is clearly very real, but the impact of it on sales remains a puzzle.

The piracy defence | FutureBook
Our lead story in the second show daily of the London Book Fair follows up on Little, Brown publisher David Shelley's comments at the pre-show digital conference that fighting online piracy was now a significant new cost faced by publishers and one of the reasons they couldn't simply raise digital royalty rates as some agents would like them to do.

Tim O’Reilly on Piracy, Tinkering, and the Future of the Book - Jon Bruner - Datanaut - Forbes
Let’s say my goal is to sell 10,000 copies of something. And let’s say that if by putting DRM in it I sell 10,000 copies and I make my money, and if by having no DRM 100,000 copies go into circulation and I still sell 10,000 copies. Which of those is the better outcome? I think having 100,000 in circulation and selling 10,000 is way better than having just the 10,000 that are paid for and nobody else benefits.

People who don’t pay you generally wouldn’t have paid you anyway. We’re delighted when people who can’t afford our books don’t pay us for them, if they go out and do something useful with that information.

Piracy isn't just about price - O'Reilly Radar
Last week, the Social Science Research Council published the results of a three-year study on piracy in the "Media Piracy in Emerging Economies" report. The report concluded that price was the overwhelming issue contributing to piracy around the world. In a post for thinq_ summing up the study results, James Nixon described an example from the report:

The real problem with piracy: it’s not just one problem! | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics
There are actually two separate piracy ‘issues’ and if you lump them all in together and pretend they are the same thing, you don’t actually address the issues that drive either group away from paying customerhood.

The first group of pirates is what I call the rogue pirate. This is the group who was probably never going to buy the book anyway. They download from the darknet because they fancy themselves the alt-techie fiddlers, or they are sticking it to the man, or because information wants to be free, or because they have a massive, manly Hulksmash of a harddrive and they are going to fill it, damn it. (...)
The second group of ‘pirate’ is what I call the convertible pirate. This is a true potential customer who would have bought from you but for some reason: the book is not available in their preferred store or in their preferred format;

Authors demand drive to raise readers' awareness of book piracy's cost | Books |
Victoria Lustigman, spokesperson for the Publishers Association, said there were signs that copyright infringements of books, though not on the scale of those in music or film, "are on the increase". The PA has issued "thousands" of take-down notices to ISPs each year, she added, "with success in the majority".

Hewson, who said he has seen a "dramatic" increase in book piracy over the past year, argued that publishers and authors need to tell the readers with new devices they've been given for Christmas, "Authors do this for a living, and if you take their work for nothing you are depriving them of a living."

Musique : Esquisse d'une industrie culturelle "post-piratage" -
Une à une, les industries culturelles sont bouleversées par la numérisation des contenus et le piratage de masse qui l'accompagne. La musique a été la première à subir cette révolution en perdant 60 % de ses revenus depuis 2002. Dix ans après, celle-ci esquisse un modèle de revalorisation de la création viable et durable redessinant ainsi les enjeux culturels hexagonaux. Anatomie d'un modèle post-piratage en gestation fragile.

Chinese Digital Content Retailer Apologizes for Selling Pirated E-books
It is rare for a Chinese e-commerce website to apologize for what it sells in this country. However,, a website that sells digital content in China, apologized yesterday for selling pirated e-books. The homepage of features a statement saying that the company removed 50,231 pirated e-books from its online offerings on Saturday.

Fearing the increase of pirated digital content, few Chinese publishers are willing to cooperate with technology companies to sell their e-books online. Although iPad or other Kindle-like e-readers are now popular in China, few consumers are in the habit of buying e-books online. Pirated versions of most bestselling books in China are available online as pirated e-book editions, even via mainstream portals like and

Au-delà de cette limite votre ticket n'est plus valable: Faut pas prendre les enfants du bon dieu pour des canards sauvages
Nous arrêtons de vendre des e-books avec DRM. Pour trois raisons :

1. La première raison, fondamentale, celle qui à elle seule m’a fait prendre cette décision est une raison d’ordre éthique. Quand on fait du commerce, acte équitable s’il en est, il ne faut pas prendre son client pour un voleur. Vendre un e-book avec DRM pour que le client acheteur ne puisse pas copier-coller son livre, pour qu’il ne puisse pas en imprimer à loisir tout ou partie, pour qu’il ne puisse pas le prêter, c’est se méfier a priori de ce client. C’est le menotter ou penser a priori que ce client est malhonnête.

La demande de livres piratés stagnerait - Bloc-notes de Jean-Michel Salaün
Après quelques années d'une croissance à 100%, 2008 montre un net ralentissement de la croissance. Le ralentissement se poursuit jusqu'au début de 2010 et puis c'est le calme plat. Depuis février 2010, la croissance de l'intérêt pour les livres piratés s'est complètement arrêtée.

On peut remarquer que cette stabilisation est arrivée au moment des fortes ventes de liseuses, dont les Kindles, Nooks et les iPads. En réalité, le lancement de l'iPad a coïncidé avec la stabilisation de la demande pour les livres piratés.

Il est difficile de savoir ce qui se passe réellement, mais une interprétation de ces comportements est que la forte augmentation d'une disponibilité conviviale de livres électroniques avec une licence appropriée dans les deux dernières années a écrasé la croissance de la demande illicite pour les livres.

eLabz, un laboratoire pour étudier le piratage des livres numériques
Après les études “eBookz” (2009) et “L’offre de livres numériques” (2010), dressant un panorama de l’offre légale/illégale et des usages de consommation autour des livres numériques, le Motif, poursuit ses initiatives en créant eLabz, un laboratoire pour étudier et mesurer dans la durée l’évolution du phénomène du piratage de livres électroniques en France.

L’observatoire du livre et de l’écrit en Ile-de-France poursuivra ainsi deux objectifs de recherche, de façon à analyser les tenants et aboutissants du livre numérique et les nouvelles pratiques (consommation, usage) qui en découlent.

Liber, libri, m. : livre - Adieu, public captif ?
Il y a de cela quelques mois en service public, rien que de très classique, j’ai expliqué qu’un livre était emprunté et qu’il serait à nouveau disponible dans trois semaines environ.

Là où ça décoiffe, c’est dans la réponse qui m’a été faite. La personne m’a dit qu’elle ne reviendrait pas, qu’elle saurait bien se débrouiller pour trouver le pdf dudit ouvrage sur Internet.

Passé mon ahurissement premier – j’ignorais tout à ce moment-là du piratage des livres -, j’ai commencé à farfouiller le web à la recherche de livres. Et j’en ai trouvé énormément, des manuels de premier cycle, des célèbres collections, des romans à succès.

The walls we build up (lettre ouverte de Biran O'Leary au nouveau Président de The Authors Guild, à propos du piratage )
Dear Mr. Turow,

Congratulations and best wishes on your election as president of the Authors Guild. This is an interesting and in some ways challenging time for publishing, and the AG is positioned to serve as a well-reasoned and informed voice for authors.

As it happens, the need for reason and data at a time of uncertainty prompts me to write. Among other pursuits, I study digital book piracy: its instance (how often and where does it occur?), as well as its impact (what’s the effect on paid sales?).

After verifying that each file claiming to be the book actually was, Attributor reported that 166 copies of the e-book were available on 11 sites. RapidShare accounted for 102. "

Arthur Attwell | Scribd? The least of your problems (angl.)
The Internet adds a dimension to publishing no less profound than adding a third dimension to a two-dimensional world. It cannot be stopp"ed, and that's scary if your business model has one less dimension than a rapidly extruding world. The best defense against seeing old business models destroyed overnight, rather than having them evolve gracefully, is to encourage companies like Scribd, because they're using web technology in well-meaning, conscientious ways. Ways you could work with as you evolve. "

Simon & Schuster Issues Digital Piracy Policy - 9/16/2009 3:35:00 PM - Publishers Weekly
"S&S acknowledged that copyright enforcement of online piracy “is by its very nature an imperfect science. But as the potential for this kind of behavior is amplified in the digital world, keeping our content secure, enforcing our copyrights, and creating a robust marketplace for easily accessible, reasonably priced content will be the pillars upon which we build our future as a digital publisher."

With E-Readers Comes Wider Piracy of Books - (angl.)
"“It’s exponentially up,” said David Young, chief executive of Hachette Book Group, whose Little, Brown division publishes the “Twilight” series by Stephenie Meyer, a favorite among digital pirates. “Our legal department is spending an ever-increasing time policing sites where copyrighted material is being presented.”

"Others view digital piracy as a way for new readers to discover writers. Cory Doctorow, a novelist whose young adult novel “Little Brother” spent seven weeks on the New York Times children’s chapter books best-seller list last year, offers free electronic versions of his books on the same day they are published in hardcover. He believes free versions, even unauthorized ones, entice new readers.
“I really feel like my problem isn’t piracy,” Mr. Doctorow said. “It’s obscurity.”"

"N’est-il pas prétentieux de croire que l’industrie du livre va réussir à « vérouiller » ses contenus, là où les majors du disque, qui disposaient de moyens économiques autrement plus importants, ont échoué, et explorent désormais ce qu’ils considèrent comme la seule issue, c’est-à-dire la vente de fichiers MP3 libérés de DRM ?
