CJ Cherryh posted this to her FB page a couple of days ago:

BE IT KNOWN: BEARLIB.COM is a pirate site. Their offerings of my books are ripoffs and copyright violations, and defraud me and the publishers. Profit is going to a company in China. Share this on and do not patronize this site. Information may want to be free, but groceries are NOT, and a writer needs your support.

Share this, please, with anyone who cares about the survival of books and literacy!

Stephanie Osborn sent out an e-mail to her fan list saying basically the same thing:

Someone who knows more about it than me tells us the following sites are, or probably are, pirate sites. The first and 3rd are currently down; Lida Quillen, publisher of Twilight Times Books, indicates that her research into the first one showed that it was down pending resolution of copyright infringement complaints. Please take note and DO NOT USE THESE SITES. You are supporting illegal activity and depriving authors of their livelihood if you do.

1) http://www.freebookspot.es/
2) viprasys.org
3) http://fictionbooksbay.com/

#1 also has a Facebook page where at least one more author has posted a complaint of copyright violation.
