SF writer Charlie Stross on what constitutes "piracy":

"I don't think the vast majority of downloads are "piracy" in any meaningful sense of the term, and I don't lose sleep over them.

"I prefer to reserve 'piracy' as a term for for people who directly cost me money by siphoning off revenue from paying customers: for example, by uploading a copy of one of my books to Amazon's Kindle store at a price lower than my publisher's, and then pocketing the proceeds, or by publishing a translation of one of my books in another country without bothering to ask permission or offering to pay royalties. In other words, I worry about people who inflict a quantifiable loss on my revenue stream by taking my work and selling it for profit without permission."
