Gospel rip-off

Postby jasper_b » Sat Oct 29, 2016 2:46 pm

Brothers and sisters!

A friend of mine found out that a couple of twatwaffles are selling printouts of Wikipedia articles as books, including The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster! See https://www.amazon.com/Gospel-Flying-Sp ... 50819505X/ :furious:

As you can see here, there's not much to print. So most of those 68 pages are probably blank: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gospe ... ti_Monster :facewall:

We are no experts, but this can't be right. Are there any lawyers here who know something about fraud, or copyright? Can this be considered a scam, or a copyright infringement? :confused:

In the meantime, if you're an Amazon.com customer, we'd like to ask you to rate this 'book' 1 out of 5 stars. If possible with a snarky review. :evilgrin:

Don't let these bastards get away with this! :whip:

P.S. You can also join the discussion on FB: https://www.facebook.com/groups/181753425298669/ :welcome:

Bounce it to Bobby Henderson.

Considering he wrote the genuine Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monstern (under divine influence from His Noodliness), he probably has grounds to put in an infringement claim for someone using the title of the gospel to sell what is likely to be an inferior product

Eric is back!

His last attempt with Amazon went down like a lead balloon when the FSM gang started writing unfavourable reviews.

Here we go again!

Guys I would urge you to go over to the site and write your own unfavourable reviews. Report it for plagiarism and call it for what it's worth.

I would encourage those who are members of the Council of the Olive Garden, and those who have pieces that were included in the Loose Canon to go to that website and report it for copyright violation.

There is also a facility for people to leave (negative) reviews. As always, should you decide to do so, BE POLITE!

Oh dear. It looks like Lulu take the same dim view over copyright theft as everyone else.

Said nicked piece of work seems to have been removed.
