Is It Piracy If You Own The Source Material?

Is-it-piracy -If-you-own-the-source-material

I’ve been thinking about this for some time now and I’m going to throw this out there for the sake of argument.

All Marvel Ultimates Titles Will Include A Digital Download Code Starting in January 2012

Marvel’s Ultimate Comics offers FREE digital copies in 2012!

UltimateComicsSpiderMan_6_Cover

UltimateComicsSpiderMan_6_CoverStarting in January 2012, Marvel Comics will include a free redeemable digital download code in all their Ultimate Comics titles. Marvel just recently started their free digital download program with the release of Avenging Spider-Man #1, which was also polybagged to protect the codes, which are printed on the inside back cover, from being stolen. The Ultimate Comics titles will also be polybagged for the same reason.

The program begins with Ultimate Spider-Man #6 in January, followed by Ultimate X-Men #7 and Ultimates #7 in February, and will continue with subsequent Issues.

UltimateComicsUltimates_7_CoverMarvel has been criticized lately for lowering the page count on some of their $3.99 titles as DC has tried to maintain a lower price point by offering many of their books at $2.99. Some Marvel fans feel that they’re not getting $3.99 worth of value for their money. DC has also offered digital downloads in a few of their titles, but for a dollar more.
