I would think that file-sharing of audiobooks is a copyright violation, is it not?

Yeah. This would be theft. This is not making a single copy for your own use. This is making copies for many people to use. I don't like finding out I own bootleg copies of such. It's crime. It means that the author does not get any royalties for her work. Most authors do not make great huge bucks writing. They are earning a living like anyone else, and many have other jobs besides writing. To me, this is taking food out of her mouth. It's theft. It's wrong.

Under most circumstances it is a copyright violation and theft, yes. And it would be against the policies of this board to "advertise" them here.

Wouldn't call them bootleg, but that's not important.
