About Nate Hoffelder (11473 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

    Sci-hub might be a pirate, but they might just be one of the few *moral* pirates out there. No author gets any money from their papers, putting a $40 price for one paper is simply kills some PhDs. Not all universities have extensive access. Intellectual property laws shouls make a distinction between academic works and fiction and such.
