Open Source Services for Illegal File Hosting

William mentioned some books so I googled them because I’m too cool for paper.

I found this changeset.

A Chinese-writing fellow is abusing Google Code for hosting books. Theoretically one could download them using following command:

svn -r 50 checkout http://leranlanguage.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/策划案/策划/推荐外文书/ illegalbooks

Now I wonder how long it will take for Google Code to react.

    I think book publishers don’t care so much about piracy because a lot of people (myself included) can’t stand reading off a screen. This may change when Kindles become more common though…
