If you’ve ever wondered about the origins and history of piracy this book delivers in spades. Now, that’s piracy as it applies to the unlicensed selling of items, not on the high seas.
I had no idea about the struggles Issac Newton and his fellow scientists faced in their day as people would take their works and publish them without permission or that there was such a thing as pirate buses in London.
Seriously, buses that operated outside of the chain of command of the normal bus system.
This book doesn’t end there. It talks about the piracy problems of today from Napster and Kazaa to beyond. It’s a great source of piracy history.
