I cannot confirm what he has or has not done with the product itself, as it seems he may have merged a couple of things together (probably someone else's WSO), but the copy itself is 90% mine (including testimonials where he replaced his name with mine)
I reported the abuse of the blog and was led to file a DMCA complaint. On the DMCA site I read this...
|Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. Indeed, in a recent case (please see Online Policy Group v. Diebold for more information), a company that sent an infringement notification seeking removal of online materials that were protected by the fair use doctrine was ordered to pay such costs and attorneys fees. The company agreed to pay over $100,000. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.|
(1) I understand anything you publish online (whether or not it is officially "registered" is copyrighted. Is this correct?
(2) Would the sales copy of my WSO thread somehow fall under the "fair use doctrine"? I doubt it seriously, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts.
