BoingBoing points to a different way to frame “copyright violation” regarding a book that is being “illegally sold” (aka ‘pirated’) along the streets of Mumbai. From the book’s author:
…[H]ow cool is it that The Search is a street bestseller in Mumbai?! Do I care about the piracy? No. No, no no. I care that someone in Mumbai cared enough to rip it off, and that someone there might be reading my stuff. That is just cool. Commercial markets always follow the free, or, well, the pirates in this case. Always.
Perhaps one could argue that “fraud” is occurring, but nothing is mentioned about the “pirated” versions being sold under a false name, plagiarized content, etc.
