    Is it legal to sell Sci-Fi eBook that are downloaded for free?
    Without talking with the owners
    And what are the consequences if you get caught?

    You can get sued by the owners of the ebooks if they find out for copyright infringement.

    If the ebook is copyleft, you can sell it but why would anyone buy it unless you offer added value?

    Some people get copyleft books and print them and add some value. You won't sell it if you just download a freeware book.

    OTOH if you sell copyrighted texts you'll get caught sooner or later and it'll cost you 100X more than you'd ever make.

    How semi-clever of you, taking my signature and using it as a snarky reply.

    You must be in rare form.

    If you do not have permission from the owner, chances are you will get in troubles, it's pretty obvious
