I did read the post. I don't understand why this person doesn't have the ability to publish the book and fight the copyright/bootlegging battle at the same time.
Yes, to illegally print this book and sell it for just under the legitimate price is disgusting. The person should rot in hell.
But to hold back in legally publishing the book (even just electronically) makes no sense whatsoever and really encourages people who WOULD LOVE TO PAY FOR THE BOOK to turn to the bootleg stuff.
