The idea of piracy and the way it effects and even changes media greatly interests me. What I dig more is the idea that piracy in some ways can greatly help the indie guys get their products out there in front of more eyes and ears for far less than what a larger corporation would spend on advertising alone.
Keeping all of this mind let me point you towards this blog and the book that Matt Mason has written which deals with piracy and everything else in between. The best part you can either buy the book off Amazon and whatnot or just download it at Mason's site for free. If you feel guilty about downloading the book for free you can also set your own price.
