    I actually used to buy pirated books way way back when I could not afford proper books, but that was the time when I had no knowledge whatsoever of intellectual property rights, copyrights and so on. Later on when I came to know about the pirated books and the economy behind it, the losses to original authors, I stopped buying them and simply joined a library. Now, I can buy books as many times as I like so no need for me to look for banned copies. But believe me when I say that pirated books business is a roaring trade but I cannot comment on whether they include the banned books, but after reading your thread, I will certainly look in on a couple of bookstalls I pass by every day. They sell mostly pirated books, I will try to find out if they sell these ones.

    I have read and bought a few pirated books since the  1970's. Ahmedabad was supposed to be a big centre for printing pirated books. These days one can get latest books in pirated manner on e-mail in digital form. I got two books one on former PM and another on Sachin Tendulkar, sent by contacts who got them. It is foolish to ban books these days as they are available on websites easily.

    Pirated Book Business is doing a booming Business since long. Even in the state owned Libraries are replete with Pirated Books. One easily find out if a Book is pirated or not. Like Ahmedabad , Hyderabad is also known for Pirated Books

    Pirated books have always been there and I am sure all book lovers know of it and I too have and even now buy novels since they are so much cheaper..Of course there is the legal copy right issue ! But here I was wondering whether people would pay money to a librarian to read pirated copies as claimed by Rambabu ...

    I think with pirated books we can get an idea what the author wants to say.

     

     

    Anil, most of the pirated books are made by people who know what sells and they make copies of fast selling books and sell them for a cheaper rate and many people buy it since it is much cheaper than the original prints.However, they will not bother with books that are banned or books with heavy subjects attracting fewer readers , since noone knows about them and there is no demand for it...

    All is right but what can be do if we wants to read banned books. I think Pirated books are  only solution.

    Chidambaram , former Finance minister has now said that banning Satanic Verses by the Congress government was a mistake - too late , since since then intolerance began to be a way of life in India. Thankfully he has admitted what everyone knew ! Banning has never helped and in India we have had too many books banned from time to time. I remember , when Da Vinci Code was released the Christian community was up in the arms since the book was quite controversial questioning the very foundation of their faith but no Christian country banned it ..

    I'm a Book lover. Even though I know that some of the Books in the Library are pirated,I read them. Some thing is better than nothing.
