This is a very important message from Chris The Story Reading Ape about those piracy sites we’ve been discovering online – they’re not about piracy and stealing our intellectual property! Here’s what you can and should do, as an author or a reader, to help get rid of them, for good!
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 reader – PLEASE 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:
