Does anyone have an account with these skeezewads?

http://www.ebooks-tree.com/

They’ve already used one of our writer’s works without permission (see her post here: http://chaneladdict.tumblr.com/post/116317924532), and I’m suspicious that they’re using at least (I’m afraid to look for more) one of my works, too: 

But, since I don’t want to give my credit card info to the OTHER SITE that they auto-redirect you to (the one where you get a “5 day free trial” before being charged for the “free service”), I don’t know if this is MY story ANTICIPATING – or not.  It’s not like they offer a preview…

My name isn’t in the list of writers, but with the recent spate of plagiarizers, that means NOTHING.

Can you blame me for being paranoid?

The whole thing strikes me as being suspicious.  So, if one of y’all has an account there and wouldn’t mind, please check to see…

Thanks in advance!

  1. I don’t but i did read all the way at the bottom of the page. (finally figured out how to do a screen shot :D)

    I take this to mean they take no responsibility for anything, do not confirm whether that title is even on their servers AND their engine searches 3rd party sites in order to find titles so those who pay whatever the rate is can have the .pdf file FOR FREE.

  2. OK, here’s the thing. These people are making a profit from other folks fan fiction stories, so they aren’t plagiarizing and since the Internet is one big copying site, they can take all these fan fics and COPY them to their site because none of you own any rights to the SVM or TB; the basic plots, characters, locations, et al. However, they cannot put them on a site and then charge people to join the site to read them. No one can profit from copywritten material other than the original author, e.g. Charlaine Harris. If the story contains any elements of TB, then they doubly screwed as well because the rights to these are owned by Alan Ball and his production company along with HBO, etc. If someone would just happen to leave word on CH’s site about this particular site doing this, well then that might stop it… Just sayin’…
