No way to avoid that, IMO. The book will immediately get on eMule, bitTorrent and other p2p networks.

Currently it is not available in ebook format. We we would like to
offer it, but we could not decide some questions.

- Should we offer it through "regular" ebook stores ( e.g.,,
mobipocket)? (It is amazing that the charge almost the same discounts
as for paper books...) Or should we try to sell it directly?

- Which format should we use? (pdf, html, ?)

- The obvious question: how can we avoid/reduce illegal proliferation
of copies?
