CNN Tech:  “When Dan Brown’s blockbuster novel ‘The Lost Symbol’ hit stores in September, it may have offered a peek at the future of bookselling.  On, the book sold more digital copies for the Kindle e-reader in its first few days than hardback editions.  This was seen as something of a paradigm shift in the publishing industry, but it also may have come at a cost.   Less than 24 hours after its release, pirated digital copies of the novel were found on file-sharing sites such as Rapidshare and BitTorrent.  Within days, it had been downloaded for free more than 100,000 times.”
