Re: Amazon books published in my name on my subjects but not by me!

Amazon isn't responsible to check patents or copyright for items sold through their system. That would not be a viable business model.

Re: CJ Alternative

I'm an affiliate for both CJ and Linkshare. While I'm not wildly successful, it's not their fault. And the money I have made, they have (so far) paid me.
