    If I say made an ebook with the rules of the internet on it, would it be legal for me to sell it for the kindle? Hypothetically.

    That I might do, but are there any forseeable problems with me selling them as a kindle ebook?

    I already have the book I just don't know if I should publish it as I have no way to get behind a proxy because my university blocks all of the proxy sites

    Your going to write the ebook? If so, you have the rights to it, so I see no problem with selling it anywhere and anyway you want.

    Well write is a loose term, perhaps copy and paste would be better.

    if the country you reside in has copyright infringement laws, then it is illegal if the book is copyrighted in your country or has a international copyright

    If you base a book on the Rules (as listed in the link above) in your own words, and expand on it and fill it out more then you just described how most books are written. Many books are written by reading other books on the same subject, and they are just rehashed with the new authors ideas thrown into the mix. As long as you don't directly copy someone's copyrighted material then it's legal. I wouldn't think a list (in the loose sense of the word here) is copyrighted.

    That's not the point, ithe difficult part is to cash in your profit after the sale, without being traceable!

    Which is a good Question, anybody know a solution?

    How does it come that whole Asia is selling fake watches and sneakers etc andget filthy rich and we can't find a way to simply sell copyrighted, downladable written content?

    One example which does not feel so "unethically" are out-of-print-books...a lot of people would love to buy them, but the publishers give a sh*t because they shovel money elsewhere.

    So what can we do? Cashing in is the problem, or how would it work?
