I’m not a scoundrel. I have no desire to visit the darknet and steal someone’s intellectual property. At the same time, it makes no sense to me that my friend in Australia can buy a book by a Canadian author for $7 cheaper than I can only because the publishers have negotiated Agency pricing agreements here. In what world does it make sense that I can buy a paper book online from the US and have it shipped to me in Canada, but I cannot legally obtain a digital edition from the same store and download it to my device? And why is a digital copy ever more expensive than the paperback edition?
