About Books and resources

Guys. How it is possible that some user share copyrighted books on sololearn free of cost. Do they have author permission or is the book an open source.. Please clear my confusion

Some publishing houses do their marketing this way. For example, packtpub.com (which I update information about on a daily basis) shares one full e-publication per day. The only condition is to refister for free on their website. However, the daily e-book is random and if you really want a certain publication for free, you might have to wait a while... ;) https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/444755/?ref=app https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/447092/?ref=app https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/476426/?ref=app https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/478620/?ref=app https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/517058/?ref=app


Then give a clear cut example :) Do you have a particular user or Q&A thread in mind?


@Divided Attention 1. does the copyright of the book permit distribution ? 2. from which resource did you get the book? 3. do you have the permission of the original author for publishing in your website ? 4. giving credits to author is not useful, if it's an copyright protected item and you publishing without their explicit permission a strict no! 5. check the copyright and seek permission if it's copyright is still active { copyrights can expire }


@Divided Attention very well, do as you wish. but be careful ! 😀


nope i dont have any particular user in my mind. just clearing some confusion.Thanks anyway


sharing books in PDF is against the copyright ?


for example we share some goods books in our website without the knowledge of the original authors is it considered copyright violation? but we are still giving the credits to the original authors.. can we share for the shake of our people for educational purposes


i just want to share the books from maz PDF resources to the people of our state some books are copyright protected but maz is still sharing so i think i can share those pdf what do think think @lord krishna what should I do?


if I go to jail for helping people to learn code 😂 that's not fair bro!!
