I don't think it's anti-piracy, because the normal text, the
explanations, the part you *should* protect, are easily copyable. No, I
think this was just a dumb mistake, no different from the programmer
who never bothers to watch his code being used in production, and
therefore leaving some "why in the WORLD did he do that?" mistakes in
the code.

By the way, all of my eBooks are personalized just like the Feistyduck
one, but AFAIK, everything in my eBooks is copy/pasteable. And my
eBooks aren't even programming books.
