Discussion: Is There a Silver Lining to Piracy?

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Victoria Stagg Elliott

Book pirates suck but are there times to ignore piracy? I once talked to an author of gay young adult fiction who ignores pirate downloads because she knew that not all gay teens had access to a credit card.

Granted, there are other ways for folks with no money to get free books – including contacting the author directly.

So my question today: Does piracy, as much as we all hate it, provide a conduit for people, especially gay kids, to find our works that they might otherwise not have?
