I have been hearing from a LOT recently that more SCAM BOOK SITES are appearing online in ever increasing numbers…

What can YOU do about it?

If you are an author and YOUR book(s) are being offered without your permission – issue DMCA Notices (SEE BELOW FIRST)

If you are a readerPLEASE DO NOT USE THESE SITES!

It may be tempting to get books FOR FREE or at greatly reduced prices but…

They may be a click farm looking for your email

and you will be infected with a virus.

*****

AUTHORS – VERY IMPORTANT!!!

DO NOT SEND THE OFFENDING SITE A DIRECT NOTICE.

If they are on Facebook – Use Facebook’s reporting form to remove their link source from Facebook’s server.

My attorney warns me not to click on them, but to send a form letter to their server.

You can find out their server here:

I’ve just been advised by Author Jack Eason that the following Facebook Site is offering six of his books in PDF format – WITHOUT AUTHORISATION, PERMISSION OR PAYMENT AGREEMENT WITH HIM…

Please check if YOUR BOOKS are being offered without YOUR permission.

If YES, NOTIFY FACEBOOK IMMEDIATELY…

MESSAGE FROM AUTHOR SUSAN TOY

PLEASE don’t send the complaint forms!!!

This is a click farm that collects your email addresses to sell.

Also, the last time this happened to us and we complained about copyright infringement our computers were infected with a virus.

Block this site on Facebook so that they cannot promote their pirate site there. 

With all of us reporting the site it will get taken down.

DO NOT SEND YOUR PROOF OF

COPYRIGHT TO THIS SITE

NEVER TRUST THIEVES!!!

Copyright Infringement: A Warning to all Authors

An important warning to all e-book authors and readers out there!

blindoggbooks

I would like to share a letter sent to me by a fellow independent author, who wishes to remain anonymous, about a website claiming to be promoting independent authors, when in reality it appears that they are offering free downloads of the work of dozens of us.

If you are an author, independent or otherwise, I urge you to read this letter and investigate the site yourself. Find out if your work is posted there and take appropriate action to have it removed, or, at the very least, make sure you are willing to grant permission to the site owners to list your work.

Making money as an independent author is difficult enough without pirating sites giving our work away under false pretenses AND without our permission.

Please share, tweet or reblog this post in order to spread the word through the independent author community and, hopefully, put some pressure…
