State of The Trout: Plagiarism and Other Stuff Edition

Posted in Uncategorized

Hey there everyone! I want to thank, thank, thank all of you for helping get the plagiarized version of my book taken down across so many platforms. It’s incredible how I can count on you guys to have my back. I’m really touched.

On that subject, I found out that the Amazon version of the plagiarized book only made five whole dollars, and that because the distributor is operated by Macmillan I would have to go to them for compensation. I’m still deciding whether or not I want to bother going after money that small. The practical part of me says no, don’t do that, it’s not even worth the five bucks to even write the email. The petty, vindictive part of me says to lawyer up and sue for that money just to put the plagiarist through a mountain of hassle on principal. I’m leaning toward the former.

In other news, Say Goodbye To Hollywood is now available at Barnes & Noble and iBooks.

    Totally understand wanting to avoid the hassle. It’s just a shame that this person probably won’t be punished and will just try again with a different name a different book. 🙁

    Thank you for leaning towards the former on this one. Don’t be litigious.
