E-Book Piracy on the Rise

There has been a recent report that E-book piracy is on the rise especially with the increased sales of e-readers and tablets.  Publishers in the UK issued 115,000 warnings to illegal file sharing websites in 2011, up from 50,000 in 2010, according to the story.  It is believed that illegal downloads account for up to one in five e-books downloaded.  Publishers are trying to work with search engines like Google to reduce the prominence of these sites.
