More About Astatalk: Posting Fiction Is Forbidden

I've written a few posts about book pirating and the file sharing site, Astatalk. I've tried hard to be objective and not add my opinion to the topic. I've learned a lot about why people share files and I hope to continue to learn.

This morning someone left an anonymous comment with this information:

This is posted on the Astatalk home page:*Dear Astatalkers,posting of Fiction related releases (downloads) is strictly forbiddenbecause in most cases it turns to the problems for copyright owners.Everyone who creates fiction related release/request will be banned.Thank you for understanding*

I just checked out the link to the astatalk announcement above and read it for myself. Looks valid to me. I heard a certain organization applied enormous pressure to have this done. But I can't divulge the details on that because I'm not certain what happened.
