- Sales figures in Author Hub are the total sales for your selected title. This means they reflect all sales of your title, both direct from Cambridge University Press and those sold by Cambridge University Press to retailers and third parties.
- Sales figures include all formats, both print and digital. Digital sales includes retail e-books (e.g. Amazon Kindle, ePub) and digital institutional copies (e.g. via Cambridge Core).
- Sales figures exclude all gratis copies, such as author copies, gratis copies, publicity copies, inspection copies and so forth.
- Some third party retailers and accounts purchase via consignment which means those sales will appear in the following month or occasionally later.

Piracy is the unauthorised and unlicensed reproduction of content that is protected by copyright law (save where certain copyright exceptions apply) and may take the form of physical or digital piracy.
Physical piracy includes counterfeit copies or photocopied books that are distributed or sold either in physical or online stores (such as on online marketplaces), while digital piracy usually involves distributing electronic copies of publications on file sharing sites, social media platforms and online forums without the copyright owner’s permission. Technology has made file sharing easier than ever as pirates are able to tap into or manipulate existing technologies to make content available to all who want it, whilst at the same time making it increasingly difficult to identify and put a stop to the perpetrators behind it.
Cambridge is committed to tackling piracy in all its forms by working closely with industry bodies, anti-piracy service providers, and enforcement agencies to deal with intellectual property infringement throughout the world and to minimise its impacts on our authors and our business.
If you come across pirated print or digital copies of Cambridge publications being sold on online marketplaces (like Amazon, eBay, Shopee etc.), or if you come across digital piracy on social media platforms (such as YouTube and Facebook), you may report them via the following link:
(Please note that by clicking the above link, you will be taken to a third-party site managed by Corsearch).
If you come across digital copies of Cambridge publications on any other websites (such as file sharing sites, torrent sites or links to infringing content which may appear through a Google search), you may report them through the following link:
(Please note that by clicking the above link, you will be taken to a third-party site managed by Link-busters).
If you encounter any issues using the links above or would like to contact the Cambridge Brand Protection team directly about a piracy-related issue, please write in to email@example.com.
