Dreamspinner and Piracy

I'm trying to contact the Dreamspinner folks, but the "Contact" form on their web site is asking me for a login and password. :P Whatever. Here's what I wanted to pass on to them:

==========

Just in case you hadn't seen, Scribd has PDFs of Size Matters and Size Still Matters on their site. :/ Possibly other things too, but this is the page I was linked to. (They have Torquere books as well.) I'm assuming you didn't give permission for this, since the books are available for free download.

==========

At this point, I'm just hoping that the info will percolate to the appropriate people, and that Dreamspinner's publisher will go smack Scribd with the appropriate DMCA takedown. Scribd has been doing this for a while (they were the subject of a kerfuffle in and around SFWA a year or so ago) so it's not like they don't know any better. They don't care, and will keep on hosting commercial texts without permission until smacked around and told to knock it off, for each individual item.
