Paulo Coelho Supported File-Sharing

Paulo Coelho Supported File-Sharing

Those who are familiar with such Brazilian books as The Alchemist, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept, and The Manual of the Warrior of Light, should know that their author, Paulo Coelho, is also famous for his support of file-sharing.

Journalist Jeff Jarvist described Paulo Coelho as the “Googliest author”, revealing the story of Coelho’s relationship with his readers. Three years ago the writer thanked BitTorrent for the huge selling-success of his works which got exposure thanks to fans who shared them on the Internet. Coelho also encouraged other authors to follow his example, insisting that the ultimate goal of an author is to be read. Only after that comes the financial part of the deal.

It was back in 2008, but the attitude of the writer towards the file-sharing has remained the same. Moreover, it has even strengthened over the time, because it was piracy that has really propagated Coelho to peaks known to no other writer. Paulo Coelho himself created “The Pirate Coelho” non-official fan website, where anyone is offered to download the full texts of his books in multiple languages absolutely for free.

The writer runs the blog, where he is often called the “alchemist of words”. In the end of April Coelho wrote a post there titled “Who stole my story?” The publishing expressed his love for pirates again.

The writer told the story about his past: when he used to be active on Myspace, someone deleted “Fly me to the moon” by Frank Sinatra from his profile. He acknowledged that the song was gone thanks to greed and ignorance. While greed fails to realize that this world has changed, ignorance believes that people won’t buy the CD if they can access music for free.

Paulo Coelho admits that many people would argue that he is rich enough to afford having his texts there for free. Although it’s true that he is rich, as were Frank Sinatra, and his heirs, that doesn’t matter. What matters is that people, including the author himself, want to share something. While the others share their photos or great blogs for free, he prefers to share his texts for free and to allow the others reproduce them provided they name the author.

On the other hand, the industry would argue that content creators can’t survive without being paid. But that’s not about piracy either. Paulo Coelho told he follows Hilal on Twitter, who is Turkish, but lives in Russia. Hilal first read a pirate edition of his book, and then she decided to purchase the book. Thus far, Coelho have more than 12 million hard copies sold in Russia, and counting. In Russia – the queen of piracy! Seems like it depends on what you believe in, isn’t it?

conmac863 avatarI think more artist and authors should follow his lead. I cannot read a book on a computer so I will always buy "real" books. If I see a movie that I really like I will buy the BR version of it. I cant count the times I have purchased movies that had cool cover art but were shite movies. I would feel ripped off and rightly so.
If you read an ebook and like it support the author that wrote it and buy the book.
If you watch a movie and like it support the artists that made it and buy the movie.
