Author Paulo Coelho Explains Why He ‘Loves Pirates’ http://tinyurl.com/6hmhczu
TorrentFreak alerts us to the news that he’s posted yet another blog post on the subject about howhe “loves pirates” and how people underestimate that artists can and do get paid, even when their work is being shared in an unauthorized fashion. In fact, he’s selling more books now that he’s actively offering up more “pirated” copies of his own work than ever before.
That parallels my own experience. While I know there are unauthorized copies of most of my books available, I’ve made sufficient from each work to be happy with the results.
