Life is a lie
2010-08-16 04:00 pm (UTC)
The publishing, music, and film industries are just publicity machines. They take something of dubious quality that they think they can market effectively and cram it down the throats of the audience. I don't like it but it works, people tend to be sheep and go on to buy these things and enjoy them. Though this causes problems for smaller labels/publishers/whatevers, I can't see it changing.
I hate the idea that anyone suffers a loss of earnings from piracy. That just seems wrong to me. I love the idea of having a tip jar that you can add to if you can't afford to buy the ebook!
I'm always up for supporting small publishers, even if I do prefer dead tree editions. When she's got it up and running, send a link to me? There might be something there that is worth a read.
