Tired of seeing your book pirated on free download sites? This drives me insane, and I spend a lot of time sending DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) take-down notices to the bastards. Some obey, others flick their nose in my direction and keep on illegally selling.
Authors and editors think they have no choice, but they do. Whenever I find a pirate site that’s illegally offering up our books, I reach for Twitter and blast out their web address and claim they attach viruses to their free download files. Think how this would impact the pirates. Hit ’em where it hurts, dear authors, and meet fire with fire.
