    It’s a hosting site for free ebooks.

    The site admins don’t provide any of the ebooks themselves - they just host files that are uploaded by whoever wishes, and provide for downloads for whoever wishes. (Not that that alters its legal status - just by way of explanation).

    It’s notably popular among college students, as a source to download free versions of obscenely overpriced textbooks.
