Lubbe Fighting Lost Symbol Piracy

By Siobhan O’Leary


German publisher Lübbe is taking a hardline approach to piracy, particularly with regards to the audiobook version of Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol (Das verlorene Symbol). The Waldorf Chancery in Munich — a staff of attorneys specializing in copyright law — has been asked to send out warnings to individuals who illegally download the audiobook from filesharing sites like eMule or BiTTorrent. According to buchreport, the publisher also plans to take legal proceedings against online platform RapidShare.

    I wish them the best of luck with that. After all, suing the fans has worked out so well for the recording industry…

    Maybe Dan Brown will have a priestly assassin sent out to track down a high school kid in the Cleveland suburbs who, in turn, will hack the Waldorff Chancery and add an “e” to their tort(“e” here) law protocols and link them to Betty Crocker recipes.
