LIFE+70[Redacted] (Lit Fest Press, 2016) by David Moscovich is the print edition of the single most expensive literary e-book to ever be hacked. The only copy of the ebook retailed at $249,999.99. While the original stolen e-book was an assertion of copyright and a story of creative robbery, this revised volume is an expanded book about the book, and includes correspondence with the cyber-saboteur. The book trailer for LIFE+70[Redacted] premiered at Preview Night of Printed Matter's 2016 NY Art Book Fair at MoMA/PS1 on Thursday, September 15, 2016. The hacker was invited to join in the October 11th festivities in New York. There was no immediate response.
