One of my favorite authors (Neal Asher) is published by Tor in the US

At the bottom, lol:

This program will end when the site launches, but you can keep the free books; we won’t be erasing them with our orbital attack electromagnets. (Yet.) Did we mention, watch the skies?

David Weber and some others kinda lead the charge here. David offered up a couple of his books, one early novel and a newer Honor novel as proof that offering free copies electronically doesn't hurt sales. Tor has found, if I'm not mistaken, that they have attracted a lot of new fans and increased hard copy sales across the board.

To bad MPAA and RIAA can't get the idea.

MPAA/RIAA die die die die die!!!!!!
