Copyright Violations

Some people have a lot of nerve

Some of the sites/persons listed here used book-editing.com material on their sites. Several used all (or chunks) of our material for craigslist and/or elance postings, and/or for spam e-mails. One person stole some of our client feedback and changed the names before posting the quotes on his site. Another person marketed herself as a web designer and used our text to build at least 5 web sites for unsuspecting clients.

Site owners are responsible for the material on their sites, even if the site was built by a hired contractor. The majority of site owners, when contacted, are upset when they learn that the person they hired plagiarized material. In those instances, the person/company who built the site is listed. When an editor/writer has copied an entire page, and refuses to remove it, the hosting company usually takes the site offline until the site owner addresses the issue. In that case, the site owner is listed.

A copyright violation by an editing or writing service is extremely serious, therefore a listing here may be permanent. Consider this a "hall of shame."

Our policy is to list sites/site owners that/who have taken copyrighted material from our various sites. Printouts are kept as proof of the violations.
