    I don't claim to be squeaky clean but I'm pretty sure that Stephanie Meyers hasn't given her blessing to having her Twilight series books put into the public domain.

    Yet there they are (first 3 books) under ebooks in Installer.

    Anyone care to comment on this from the moderators?

    The makers of Installer really have little control over what packages are hosted on 3rd party servers. There is nothing in Installer that outlaws piracy.

    Installer and Cydia, are for the most part a haven for packages not sanctioned by Apple.

    EDIT: Is this on Touchrepo?

    Yep, there actually is quite a bit of piracy over installer, in fact there are even cracked apps, idk why nobody takes them down or something.

    Just because they are not sanctioned by Apple doesn't mean they are illegal. Apple has stated before that pd apps are not a concern. Cracked apps on Installer is a different issue however. I'm still surprised that one of Steve's Trolls hasn't picked up on Twilight. Excellent series by the way.

    Umm.... ok some of the people in here REALLY need to read up on how Installer works.

    1 - Installer was NOT made by Apple, and is NOT maintained by Apple

    2 - ANYONE with an IQ over 30 can make a repo for Installer

    3 - Don't take your issues here, report it to the maintainer of the repo that this set of ebooks is on

    I don't mean any disrespect, but seriously, I was shocked that no one had already clarified this.
