I was wondering how sites that offer e-books are not breaking any copywright laws? Did the Learned Pig Project, for example, have to obtain the publisher's permission? I am just a curious party!

They are, in general, re-publishing items that are in the public domain - no current claimant to copyright. In some cases, e.g. at Lybrary.com, they are publishing current material for magicians who presumably get a cut on each sale.

If it is legal I would like to join (the Learned Pig) but I've had little success getting through. Does anyone have just a regular email address? The CD's they sell seem like a "SUPER" deal.
Thanks
