I believe I can speak for the others when I say we do not condone illicit behavior, such as file sharing of copyrighted material, on this forum. Please don't post it. :)

I speak for the other side who does condone sharing. At this time I can not dish out enough green papers to pay for all media I would like to experience, it is my position that information should not be held hostage for money. If I were to write a book I would be glad that someone was interested, regardless of whether they paid me or not. Money is a joke anyway, same with "copyrights" on a PDF file. If I really like a book I will buy it after I have made that decision.

Weston Price's book is public domain in many countries:

http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/price/pricetoc.html

Aajonus' books, on the other hand, are not. I agree with djr_81.

actup90:
It would be nice if we lived in a utopia with no money, and everything and anything were freely available to everyone. But unfortunately, modern society does not work like this, and it's not going to change any time soon. Saying that "money is a joke" is very naive.

For the record -- a while ago, somebody posted links to pdfs of some copyrighted in-print low-carb books, and the mods/admins ended up deleting them.

It is only naive if you have bought into the idea that things can not be changed. Please don't forget about all of those who are hopelessly suffering because of what we call "money", that is green slips of paper that are controlled by one institution most people have never even heard about. I agree it is not going to change any time soon. But it will change if people continue to peacefully ignore meaningless statutes, and start looking for ways around the dominating powers that be. Sharing a PDF file is not theft, forcing people to pay taxes to fund war is theft.

If the ones who regulate this web site do not want something on here then that is their right. They have not given input yet, so both sides are legit, I just felt like voicing the fact that this "illicit behavior" claim is simply an opinion no matter how many people share it.

I don't like warez here.

I believe the authors of the wonderful books need to be paid their dues so others may have the incentive to write as well.

I myself plan to write, make videos, make audio books about health and healing, including my interpretation of raw paleo diet.

I have children to feed and they need the money.
