@lilithsaintcrow @mlubert If you bothered to pay attention, you'd see that your argument (that piracy, and not a lack of sales, is why publishers aren't backing a book) is actually false, and I wasn't condoning any piracy. You can't assume people want to buy something because they show interest in it. Sales 101: Nothing has a 100% conversion rate. Assuming everyone who is interested wants to buy it is a shortcut to disappointment.
Piracy is bad, and blaming it is bad.
