If your argument against piracy fails to work if the words ‘used books’ are inserted into them, then think hard. Some authors want to get rid of used books, or at least divert money from them to authors, as they really do view them as ‘lost sales.’
This I think is the most important thing to remember when discussing piracy, wether it be books, music or movies; A download does not equal a lost sale.
We have a client, assume everything in it is public, including the source. Each client requests information from a server via urls stored in the client (so public as well). The server should only respond to valid clients. What is the best way to ensure this is the case, or at the very least to make it very difficult to use invalid clients?
Matador has been working closely with Neil Lennon on some exciting new projects. I can’t reveal all the details, but it will involve mobile (iPhone & Android) & desktop apps, with a lot of input directly from Neil. To ensure the fans are the first to know when we launch these new projects we’ve begun taking registrations on www.neillennon.com.
