According to the Los Angeles Times
(http://www.latimes.com/business/20000724/t000069317.html), most of the
electronic copies were purchased by Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com which
then gave them away for free. A survey of 3000 downloaders found that less
than 1% actually read the book. They downloaded the "free" copies just to
be part of the novelty.
