|Royse's Stolen Book|
The trend and tradition of Eastern and Far Eastern countries sacking Western treasures is not new, but is certainly escalating.
Muslims have recently engaged in full frontal attacks against every brand of Christianity, using Western Christian research and discovery only to mock and ridicule Western religious values and claims. The new attacks from Muslims and other extremists are unique in the history of Christendom.
Before these people have even hung out a shingle, they have stolen and uploaded scholarly works still very much in copyright, and the result is that sales of scholarly books simply stagnate, as Muslims give it away free.
Here is a perfect example of this outrageous theft. Remember this is not even for personal use, or to promote the sale of Western authors, but to completely sabotage their efforts by robbing them of legitimate benefit from their hard work.
Now Royse's opus 1000 page book, reasonably priced at under $100 (and in these small markets thats a miracle in itself) has been put on the internet by Muslim pirates, bent on undermining Christianity at all costs and by all methods, regardless of their dishonesty and criminal status.
The following new Muslim site, (and we snapshotted their page below) hasn't even got a greeting or legitimate front up yet, but has made available thousands of copyrighted books, bypassing international copyright agreements:

which translates to an American host-site.
Here is the link to a downloadable and complete copy of Royse's book, found accidentally by merely googling "Novum Testamentum Graece (Clarendon, 1870)" (found on Google link-page 6 in my browser):
