Larry Moniz (larrymoniz) | 6 comments Kindle Direct Publishing has been hacked and the Ebook version of my book: Longhouse Homicide, ISBN 978-0979700736, is now being offered free for download in various formats. The Kindle Direct Publishing Version through Amazon operations is the only possible source for this piracy by an operation calling itself Check Out My Ink.

To operators of that site I wrote:

“Please be advised you are enabling infringement on my copyright for the book: Longhouse Homicide, ISBN 978-0979700736, by offering it for download. Unless you take steps to remedy this situation by 5 p.m. today, Oct. 7,2016, you will be subject to a legal action for copyright infringement and book piracy. I also MUST receive written confirmation from you by the specified time and date in order to withhold civil and criminal legal actions against your operation.”

Here are the links to the site and to the form in which I requested my unauthorized listing be immediately removed:

Adding insult to injury; apparently Amazon Kindle distributed the EBook version free of charge to one of its members based on the lack of any sales being shown in my monthly report. As a result, I’ve UNPUBLISHED all of my fiction works from Amazon Kindle pending satisfactory resolution of this most serious piracy problem. Readers here may also wish to do the same.

Laura Gill | 3 comments Check Out My Ink is a site devoted to tattoos. I don't see how you could possibly pirated thru them. Also, I think your actions are very extreme, as shown by your letter to Amazon. There's a format for this sort of thing where you can assert your rights and be polite at the same time.

If you investigate a bit further you might find that your book isn't being pirated at all. In fact, when I typed your book title into a search engine, I can't find it at all.

Feliks (dzerzhinsky) Yes it all seemed freakishly over-reactive to me as well. In my groups I still allowed the posts, but I removed the strident screaming in all cap letters (as if a tsunami was headed our way).

I don't care what's happening to anyone, no need to scream this loud over the internet. This is not the medium for klaxons and alerts.
