Interesting. If I search for my publications on Oreilly there are more hits for sites offering free downloads than legitimate outlets, but I only see 5 takedown requests on behalf of oreilly. Authors don't get much of a royalty percentage.. Probably works out at the worst per hour rate of any job... but it's disheartening when the majority of readers are also reading pirated copies...

A better method for embedding YouTube videos on your website. It reduces the page size by 500 kb and the video player loads on-demand when the user initiates playback, not otherwise.
Learn how to embed YouTube videos responsively and without increasing the page load time. The embeds are light and mobile friendly and the YouTube player is loaded only when the user initiates the video playback.
