Remember seeing the road-side 'bookstores' near Fountain (Churchgate) and how they had the bestseller as well as technical books? Looks like the cops are starting to go after these "book bootleggers". The laws exist but backlogs in the judicial system mean that the counterfeiters are hardly prosecuted. That and the 'why should I care?' attitude of people who buy such books ensures that there will always be a market for these grey-market books.
BTW, the article makes the common mistake of using 'piracy' to describe copyright infringement.Posted by Harshal at April 22, 2004 01:34 PM
