Having recently heard about a friend who had her e-Book stolen - idea, characters, plot and even the cover - I have shelved the idea of going digital. I can imagine that it must have been one of those 'stomach-dropping' moments when she saw her book with someone else's name as the author, but, as she says, there is not very much that she can do about it. It is sad to realize that such people - devoid of any form of conscience and motivated only by greed - are obviously everywhere...


  1. I hadn't thought about that possibility. It's bad enough when an image of a painting is copied, but to have all the hard work of a book stolen must be awful.

  2. I agree, Keith, though I really don't know what one can do to prevent it happening. Of course, intellectual and creative theft has always existed, but I guess that the development of the electronic book has just made it all that much easier.
