eBook Piracy

I thought that this posting on MediaBistro was interesting:

Top 10 Pirated eBooks at The Pirate Bay

Read the post for the methodology.

“1. 1000 Photoshop Tips and Tricks
2. Advanced Sex: Explicit Positions for Explosive Lovemaking
3. What Did We Use Before Toilet Paper?: 200 Curious Questions
4. Photoshop CS5 All-in-One For Dummies
5. What Rich People Know & Desperately Want to Keep a Secret-
6. 101 Short Cuts in Maths Any One Can Do
7. Touch Me There!: A Hands-On Guide to Your Orgasmic Hot Spots
8. How to Blow Her Mind in Bed
9. 1001 Math Problems
10. How To Make People Like You In 90 Seconds Or Less”

Now is it just Pirate Bay, or does e-book piracy look like an easy case for the FBI profiler?

Clearly it’s not an audience of Hogwarts, dragon tattoos and hornet nest kickers.

Is there a geekless, nerdless piracy site frequented by the average library user or are they more likely to be law-abiding?
