eBooks sell



Schon etwas šlter, aber kurz und gut.

   Stephen King published his latest novella electronically. The security
   protections were broken within two days, and unprotected copies were
   available on the Internet. This should not surprise anyone. (The other
   interesting factoid is that apparently despite the widespread piracy,
   the experiment can was a rousing success. He could have expected to
   make about $10,000 selling it to Playboy; early reports are that he
   made about $450,000 in e-book sales.)
