Book Piracy Petition.

If you remember, I wrote a blog post on Book piracy not that long ago, that went into detail on why I dislike it so much.

In light of that week, a fellow writer, Wendy Clarke, owner of the wonderful Fiction Cafe Book Club on Facebook, and I, decided to start a petition following unsuccessful reports of various pirate book groups.

Facebook rejected almost a dozen separate author reports for one specific group, simply because we cannot report copyright if it is not ‘OUR’ intellectual property. They also claimed these groups did not breach the community guidelines known as Facebook law!

Despite these groups having multiple illegal files from well known authors and shamelessly distributing them.

Being that we are very stubborn women, we decided to start a movement to have Facebook revise this policy and crack down on illegal book sharing on it’s platform.

#stopbookpiracy

We ask that they not only take responsibility for the content being passed around on their platform, but they allow third party reports for copyright theft , in case the owner of the property is not able to find their own content. That means groups full of pirated books could be reported by anyone, not just specific authors for their own books only, and Facebook would have to act.

If you want to report a Facebook group for piracy to be added to the list we are compiling, you can send a link with the details to my own team……..

We are working with other authors to crack down on this draining practice.
