    One of my friend decided to start a site and sell ebooks there. He actually downloaded all books from a warez site. But i fear that he will have a copyrights issue while selling it? Is that so? Can i have your views on this?

    That sounds like a problem waiting to happen ;)

    Yes, he'd need to buy the rights to what he's selling. I don't know much about the area, but I believe that there are many ebooks where the rights can be purchased for minimal cost and you can repackage them as your own. Do a Google search for "private label rights".

    I can bet on this one. Your friends gonna be in deep trouble pretty soon. Publication houses these days have become very stringent about their rights and your slightest mistake would unloose hell on you.
