I am writing a paper that discusses alternatives to textbooks. As part
of the work, I have been reading of e - books, e - publishers, and
thinking a bit about writers having a right to fair compensation.
Most of the books I own, I buy used. I have looked for the lowest
prices I can. I am wondering, though, in buying cheap used books, am I
engaging in anything akin to bootlegging in music, ie, cheating
authors out of their fair earnings?
This information will not appear in my paper, as it has only a
tangential relation to my topic, but I would welcome your views.
