“Someone is selling a fake copy of my old book on Amazon!”

Q –

Hi, Angela,

I noticed a third-party seller on Amazon is offering one of my older published dog books with what is clearly a homemade, fake cover. This book is likely out of print and I get no royalties on it anyway, but it just seems wrong that this seller is allowed to do this. Is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks,
Cindy

    It’s happening all the time ! It’s called “monetizing,” where publishing house GRAB old “public domain” works or “out of print,” and the “re-publish” them under a new imprint, then sue Archive, or other public domain sources as if THEY own ALL the rights !!!
