Of course someone can scan it. It's still one more hurdle compared to just having an e-book version for people to put on their sites or upload.

People need to realize that an incremental reduction of a problem can be a worthwhile goal.

Just because one can't eliminate piracy doesn't mean that cost-effective steps to limit its effects shouldn't be taken.

Who would argue that we shouldn't have a police force because there's no way we'll ever stop all violent crime?

I'm all for stopping the pirates however the way publishing is going people expect to be able to read a book they bought on their IPad or Kindle or PC etc. There are other ways you can secure Ebooks that add a similar measure of pain to the would be pirate.

I've been involved with computers since the 80's, I remember every silly copy protection scheme that came down the pike. All they did was cause pain to the legal end-user. Pirates cracked all of it. Pirates still crack all of it and I remain unconvinced that any of the new e-book stuff has changed that.

I decided not to get a Kindle about two weeks ago because none of the books that I've wanted to read recently have been available on Kindle. Maybe it's just bad luck, but Kindle selection was batting .000 for me.

And wandering through Barnes and Nobles yesterday, real books don't seem to be slowing down that I can see. So until I see a compelling reason to go back to digital formats, I'm not going to.

I actually prefer real books, something about it cant be replicated with an ebook.

As do I, which i think is mainly an age/generational thing. I suspect that, going forwards, younger folks will have less overall attachment to 'real books' just as a function of not being raised with nothing but.

I just think it's more convenient and comfortable to grab a book and read it on the couch or whatever vs. reading it from a computer screen.

I bought RFL in electronic format but if I had to do it again I'd probably grab the book. Different people like different stuff though. I guess it could also be an age thing like Lyle mentioned.
