Well, I'm not going to post any links for obvious reasons (and please observe that courtesy in any and all responses!), but it looks like ol' Vintage Games is coming under fire from torrent and other peer-to-peer file sharing sites. Personally, I expected this and can tolerate it to a certain level, but a few of them are really getting brazen about advertising the links and even using our own promotional images. In short, as long it was on the d.l. I didn't pay it much mind, but now it's starting to get on my nerves. I mean, it's one thing to have to dig through a torrent site to find the file; quite another when it's easy to find in Google.

What do you think about this? Should we just ignore it or what? Love to hear your views on this topic.

It's not your fault, Stu.

It's not your fault, Stu. I'm like you; I wasn't surprised about it going up. I mean, it happens. It's not like you can't find almost every other book you'd care to read on there. What I'm surprised is about is a link Bill sent me where they had a giant picture of our book (probably hotlinked), a review, and links to the torrents and p2p sites. I mean, geez. That'd be about as dumb as if we started posting warez links here--just like putting a big bullseye on your head (or else, mooning the folks who work to make this stuff).

I'm not going to be a hypocrite here and claim to be perfectly innocent either, but at least I had the common sense not to blast it to the world. That's just ignorant.

Sadly, no, that's not the case. It's the official indexed PDF.

sorry to hear, lets hope its not a good quality scan, forcing people to want to go out and buy it.

part of me wants to be surprised but, its hard to be. at least it did not go up before it was officially sold in book form.
