Looks like some have problems with this. So Ill get rid of it.
Ah, the good old Peer-to-peer system lives!
Just a note, if you join a P2P system you face the potential of having your computer open to invasion. You're basically giving rights to an unknown number of people.
I posted about a torrent site on WW2 talk and it got wiped. I have no problem with that and apologise to the Mods for breaching the rules. P2P has its place but any download I make sure I clean the files thoroughly.
Dose Osprey publishing know of this?
Out of print books maybe alright but in print?
The copyright laws in the US say the author has 50 (or is it 75) years right to the book after their death. It is probably different in the UK.
..very wise. Basically we are talking nefarious activity here - that's how the publishers see it at any rate. I stumbled across a Russian site that was providing virtually the entire Osprey back catalogue on-line. According to info posted elsewhere Osprey are currently in the process of developing technology to counter these download sites, so yes, they certainly know about it..
However there is little or no chance of them obtaining redress in Russia..
how about a firm spanking to google who has free-bie downloads of many works in print and not just OOP
I'm not certain, but I think Google pays royalties.
