1.  I will respect your copyright.  

 

2.  I will legally obtain your book for the agreed upon price. (In some cases, that may be from a used bookstore or library loan).

 

3.  I will not pirate, bootleg, upload or otherwise illegally distribute your book.  (In fact, if I find a pirated copy on a torrent site I will go thru the hassle of reporting the infringement.)

 

4.  I will never write a dishonest consumer product opinion for your book.  (I cannot in good faith promise I will review everything I read or that I will read every book owned.)

 

5.  I will respect the feelings of authors who feel a non-attacking, within site guidelines rating/review is bullying.  I will not knowingly have any interactions with you or your books—despite how demeaning that self-centered viewpoint is to bully victims and how much it undermines real bully prevention efforts.  I will do my best to make sure the book community knows that you equate ratings/reviews with bullying.
