Pirating of 50 Funniest Siri Answers Stopped

  (June 12, 2012)

Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 12, 2012

Dery Books today announced that a prominent online file-sharing service has agreed to stop promoting free downloads of The 50 Funniest Siri Answers, the only eBook in the Life With Siri series of eBooks that is known to have been pirated.

The author, Jodi Dery, stated, It was a surprise to learn that a link had been posted on a file-sharing service to freely download one of our copyrighted eBooks. Upon learning that, we took immediate action by contacting that file-sharing service and demanding that the download link be deactivated. Fortunately, it turned out that the file-sharing service is a responsible organization. They promptly deactivated the download link.

Dery added, There is a lesson to be learned by this experience. Anyone who has a valid copyright on an eBook should be on the alert for such pirating. That is easily done with Google Alerts. Then, as we discovered, a firm demand with a threat of legal action can quickly eliminate the pirating.

While most eBooks are primarily text-based, Life With Siri is essentially illustrative, using original screenshots to demonstrate how to most effectively use Siri, the perceptive, conversational personal assistant on the iPhone 4S. As Dery put it, Presenting Siris responses in this illustrative manner -- with maximum use of illustrations and no more text than necessary -- helps to remember the best ways to get results you want from Siri. Even so, Siri is unpredictable and full of surprises.

Each of the Life With Siri eBooks is illustrated with original screenshots of conversations with Siri on the iPhone 4S, as well as original editorial comments, and each of these eBooks is protected by copyright.

The 50 Funniest Siri Answers and its companion volume The 50 Best Siri Tips are available for download through Amazon (Kindle edition), Barnes & Noble (Nook Edition) and iTunes (iBooks Edition) at $.99 each. Life With Siri, Volume One combines both eBooks with additional material, and it is available from all three retailers at $1.99 per download.

Life With Siri, Volume Two, is now also available at $1.99 per download. It contains 56 additional Siri tips and 52 additional funny Siri answers.
