Are your titles being pirated?


It doesn't matter if you are a large, small or medium-sized trade or academic publisher; any title that is popular is at risk of being pirated in international markets.

There are several steps that you can take if you suspect that your titles are being pirated:

1. Inform the PA stating what titles are being pirated and where.

2. Use the Six-Step Guide to Dealing with Copyright Infringement to decide your next course of action.
