Piracy came up in my facebook feed the other day and I remembered an article I read that was about a study done by the EU in regards to piracy. The study basically said that piracy doesn’t hurt sales. People who are committing piracy were likely never going o buy the product they pirated.

Don’t worry about it. What can you do about it? Check websites every day and make sure your books are secure. Don’t waste your time.
Unless someone is making thousands of dollars of your work it’s not really worth perusing a recourse over this in my opinion.
I think I’d take piracy as a complement to be honest. It’s so good it’s worth stealing!
To each their own. Here’s a link to an article that was previously withheld by the EU.
