I like Amazon. Love them, in fact. But can someone tell me their corporate address in case Consumer Fraud Charges need to be filed against them?
We know they're the world's largest lovable book store. Great prices. Great inventory. But guess what? Now they're a publisher, too.
They publish books.
Many fine authors publish via Amazon.
Guess who else they publish?
David Boyer, the sleazy plagiarist operating out of Vincennes, IN.
So if you're a writer, and David Boyer under one of his many aliases steals your stuff and publishes it for profit through Amazon, is Amazon guilty, too? They know he's a plagiarist and have yanked some of his plagiarized works off their internet shelves. But when he sends them a book like "Shadow Dolls" or "Mystery Indiana," they publish them without checking to see if they're plagarized.
So I ask you, if they know he's a plagiarist because they've had to take down some of his books, and they publish his new books without checking to see if they're plagiarized, are they now accomplices?
If they don't take a stand against David Boyer the Vincennes, IN plagiarist, is it because they don't mind making money off of stolen works?
Does this make them guilty of Consumer Fraud?
