As part of an arti­cle inves­ti­gat­ing the grow­ing phe­nom­e­non of eBook piracy, a Scan­di­na­vian news out­let inter­viewed a 19 year-old self-confessed pirate who bragged about his activ­i­ties. To counter his view­point a well known author con­tributed to the piece, stat­ing that she abhors book piracy since it costs her huge amounts of money. How­ever, her moral stance took a bit of a beat­ing when her son let an embar­rass­ing fact slip out.
