I did not read into SOPA beyond a glance, so I am not saying I agree or
disagree with it. But I recently spent 9 months of my life writing a book.
I sold 400 copies up to Q3 this year.
I checked some USENET stats for number of times my book was illegally
downloaded just a couple weeks after it came out. It was over 300,000. I
can find thousands of sites to illegally download it from.
It would be nice if I could just get $1 ( about 0.025% the cover price)
from each person that illegally downloaded my book.
Not saying that I am super brilliant or deserve to be rich, but what is
fair is fair. You download my book I should get SOMETHING for it.
