My Android app links a website's downloadable content (PDF file) and shows it within the app. Is it any type of copyright violation? The content is freely downloadable from the site. If anyone can give some insight it will be helpful?

You seem to be leaving out necessary information — specifically, is this an existing publisher you have a contract with, or a prospective publisher considering your book? If it’s an existing publisher, then the answer lies in your contract. Most likely, it precludes you from being able to print and distribute copies of your book yourself (whether selling or giving away). This is because a book contract is a license of your copyright (the “right to copy”); you have licensed the publisher this right. So, again assuming this is in your contract, you’re violating the terms of your agreement by doing this. That it’s your original work is irrelevant. As an analogy, I can’t rent you my home and then come over and stay for a week in “my home” without your permission. As for the “why” behind this, it should be obvious — by doing what you’re describing, you’re eliminating 100 potential sales the publisher could be making. This is likewise why t don’t want you printing and distributing the book to anyone. If you have a true publishing agreement, the publisher invested all the money necessary to produce your book and bring it to market. This usually amounts to thousands of dollars. In return, t rightfully deserve to recover that money (and hopefully extra in profit) by selling your book. Denying them sales is essentially taking money from them. And this is why you have (or should have) a clause in your contract that allows you to buy discount author copies, which are usually half the cover price. This gives you the ability to more affordably give books away or sell them yourself to make money on top of your royalties — without cutting into the publisher’s earnings. (T’re effectively giving you the same discount as a store gets through retail distribution.) As I mentioned, the only other situation in your question is a publisher you have no agreement with. In this case, their concern is basically the same as above — you’ve potentially deprived them of 100 good sales. (Family and friends are the first circle of sales authors/publishers can usually count on.) [Answered. Why would a publisher be concerned if I copyrighted a book and made 100 copies to give my original work to family members?]

Type on PDF: All You Need to Know

For the same reason publishers don’t want you giving copies away: you're effectively taking money from them. [Answered. Publishers and publishers-in-waiting are interested in one thing above all else — making cash. (If they were concerned about the book sales, would they really want to give the book out for free?) So, that's the general answer. I am, however, currently seeking more info for clarification of this issue. So let me know (if you have time) if you need more support in understanding just what is meant by “previous rights' holder” in the example just given by you. (’Is there a difference between an author’s current copyright and the rights the previous author might have had to a given work’and how this might affect the rights of a potential author/publisher to the future sale of that work for resale/for sale’?) If the rights' holder was the.
