like downloading songs , from limewire /?
yes but thousands of people get away with it every day. its calling pirating "copying something and not paying for it.". the reason why its a crime is because your stealing the author of the book money.
another way to look at it.
you write a song and it ends up in iTunes. Your song is worth 3$ to download. i go on a website and download your song for free. so when i download it for free i took 3$ from you.
see what i mean
find out if its copyrighted... if it is then yes its a crime unless you have teh authers permission.
It depends...some eBooks are made for free publication, so those are quite open for download.
The best way is to go to a site that actually hosts free eBooks - those are safe to download.
if you don't pay for it i guess yea its like that
how can i find out
