This is an article about printing in Malaysia, and the difficult choice publishers are faced with - to decide on ebook and/or printed book.
My 2 books are published as printed books and as ebooks. Both versions are made available to the public, locally and internationally, and on the Internet. Do I worry about them being photocopied? No. Even if it is photocopied, or printed from the ebook, it is not the same as holding an original printed book.
