Take it from the founder of Rhapsody—letting piracy corner a content market is
death:

"Random House is pricing my first novel like an MP3 single. And as the founder
of the company that built the Rhapsody music service, I’m thrilled. The reason
is that I love writing fiction, but building a big audience for self-published
books would require ghoulish levels of social media stamina that I lack (proof:
this is only my third blog post in 14 months). This means that if I want to
reach readers—and I do—I need the backing and support of a publisher. Make that
a solvent publisher."

A good article on piracy, pricing and publishing.

Share and enjoy,
