Kind of sad . . .

Recommended Posts

I know this is probably going to sound stupid, but I wrote a discipline story and its been plagiarized, made into a kind of parody version and put up on Amazon as an ebook to be sold. Im broke and cant review it at this time because I havent bought anything on Amazon. So I'm kind of sad about that, just wanted to vent.

Wow! I would be sad, too -- and angry! Maybe you could try making a report to Amazon that the material is plagiarized, and include a copy of your story as evidence. Be sure to put a copyright mark on it with the year you wrote the story. If plagiarism is suspected, Amazon may pull the material. When you write something original, you automatically have a copyright -- here's how to protect yourself further for free: http://www.ehow.com/how_4446589_book-script-creative-work-free.html.

Even if the material has been changed, plagiarism can involve the use of major themes or elements of someone else's work.

If the plagiarist is a member of this site, report them to the moderator. Someone else was banned earlier this year for using other members' material on her own website without permission.

Good luck!

It's remarkably common. I have a friend who has several books on fitness and writes a popular blog. People steal her blog posts word for word and publish them as e-books at 99 cents a pop. She actually hires someone from time to time to scan the e-book sites for plagiarism. Unless you have the money and time to pursue legal action, the site just removes the material and bans the plagiarist -- who then re-emerges under a different pseudonym with more plagiarized material. It's quite a racket.

That really sucks. I’ve had people steal my artwork before. It's not fun.

Hopefully, you'll be able to find a place where you can share your work with people you know you can trust.
