Amazon sells stolen goods

My wife Gweneth presented a paper at a conference on water management back in 2003. She was somewhat surprised to discover the other day that it’s now available for sale on Amazon. And no, she didn’t sign over the copyright. She’s emailed them, so it’ll be interesting to see if it’s still up on the site in a week’s time.

  1. One of my articles is there too. I am getting some money for this article via the Copyright Agency Limited, but I really don’t understand how digital copyright works. It’s available for free at http://www.ipa.org.au so people would be mad to pay for it. An old IPA Review article is barely worth reading for free!

    I was so excited to discover IPA Review – I was not the only person in Australia who wanted another view than the PC one!

    I bought the mag for about 2 years but decided to drop it as they were very patchy articles – in the sense of intellectual rigour. The finisher was when the Hanoi Jane untruth was repeated in print there.

    But barely worth reading for free? There is far worse value for money out there.

  3. Chris – I was referring to my own article, not trying to rubbish other people. Like most magazines reliant on voluntary contributions – and a few that aren’t – the IPA Review is patchy. But I have been a subscriber for a very long time.
