So, we have here an author, Tim W Lieder Tim W Lieder. In a discussion on ebook piracy, he naturally takes the position that it is bad. Fair enough. However, he acts like a completely self-righteous prick about it, deeming unauthorized copying an offense deserving of death. But then, he cheerfully admits that he writes term papers for money.
So let me get this straight: Piracy is theft and steals bread from the mouths of starving artists and EEEEVIL, but helping cheaters defraud institutions, inflating the grades of those of us who don't cheat... is apparently legal, and so not worthy of condemnation at all. The hypocrisy, it astounds. Given the small number of published works with his name on them, I wonder if the cheater-enabling is his primary source of income?
