Penguin Random House is appalled by the illegal distribution of a pirated PDF of Truth to Power by André de Ruyter, which is being disseminated on WhatsApp Messenger. The distribution of pirated copies infringes our copyright as well as that of the author, and it is unlawful in terms of the Copyright Act of 1976.

We wish to make clear to the public that the only way to obtain an e-book legally is to buy it from an e-book retailer or to borrow it from an authorised e-book library. Any copying or distribution of a pirated e-book, or any forwarding of a link to the pirated e-book, is unlawful. We will take legal action against individuals who are circulating pirated copies, which may include criminal complaints once we have collected all the necessary information.

André de Ruyter's reaction when he learnt about the pirated e-book: "It seems in South Africa anything related to Eskom is prone to being stolen."

We thank those individuals who have taken a stand in deleting the pirated copy and who instead have bought the book or the legal e-book.

Buy the book from Graffiti at a discount! They will deliver!
