Steal This Book : Slate looks at the burgeoning problem of book piracy.

“The old argument that no one likes reading on a computer has pretty much eroded. In the last five years or so, we have all become accustomed to reading newspapers online, not to mention the explosion of Web media — from blogs to the magazine you are looking at right now — that don’t exist in print at all. This will only become more true not less true. Just because publishing people can’t conceive of book piracy doesn’t mean it can’t happen.”
