Startling but true!
There are illegal websites out there that make electronic copies of popular books and encourage people to download them for free. These pirate sites make their money off advertisements, including Google ads.
A friend recently pointed me to an illegal copy of one of my books, SATFOL, which was sponsored (without his knowledge, of course) by "Elliott Massie"!
It is a strange world in which we live.
