are you getting metadata via REST from it-ebooks.org? Does this include pirated books?

Wonder if it is related to it-ebooks.info that is mentioned at:

Yes, I'm using IT eBooks Open API v.1 not it-books.org.

I've no business with IT ebooks. But as i know, it-books-api.info uses FilePI for file hosting service. This site not required any registration. I think approx all book are pirated and published without permission of author.

So, for this reason many sites blacklisted the link of it-ebooks.info including stackoverflow.com
