Will Books Survive?
Image via WikipediaPaulo Coelho asks whether books will survive.
… this week I want your opinion on the following matter: will books survive?
This is the question that the book fair is raising and in my speech I say that books will not disappear since there is free content flowing on the net. Said this, many fear sharing content while I think that a solution can be reached in which publishers, authors and agents will agree upon. In my eyes, the wrong way is to be greedy and consider that content shouldn’t be shared and that internauts are mainly pirates.
My speech – that will be posted here tomorrow – talks about this: that there are no pirates in internet but people eager to share content.
So I want you to share your ideas on books, free content and on what’s going to happen in this new context.
Head on over and drop him a line.
