Nebula and Hugo Award winner Martha Wells writes about how Amazon profits from pirated copies of her novels

Read author Martha Wells' Twitter thread about her troubles with Amazon.

To recap:

  1. Amazon allows people to sell pirated copies of Martha Wells's books (e.g., The Books of the Raksura, The Murderbot Diaries).
  2. Amazon doesn't do anything about it when she alerts them to the problem.
  3. She has to deal with complaints from readers who unwittingly bought pirated copies and find them riddled with typos.
  4. Amazon tells her she has a copyright infringement claim against her.
