Online book piracy study
Attributor, creator of an online monitoring and enforcement service, recently released some interesting results from its study on online book piracy. The study looked at illegal downloads of 913 popular titles and found that nine million copies were illegally downloaded from October to December of 2009. Titles within the Business & Investing, Professional & Technical, and Science categories were downloaded most often. For each of the titles tracked, the average number of illegal downloads was 10,000 copies.
