My letter to the thieves' hosting company (ETA)

As a follow-up to my previous post, this is the letter that I sent to Moniker with regard to the copyright infringement of my fan works by Ebooks Tree (the first line is the subject line of the email):

These works may be found listed together (http://www.ebooks-tree.com/search.php?q=Iulia%20Linnea), as well as by searching for "iulia_linnea" on ebooks-tree.com. There is a link to a "Full Version" of my works at the top of the following page: "http://www.ebooks-tree.com/search.php?q=Iulia%20Linnea".

These works are my intellectual property. I do not give ebooks-tree.com or anyone else permission to offer these works for download, and I did not consent for them to be available on ebooks-tree.com. I have good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. The information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

I am requesting that you require ebooks-tree.com to remove my works from the site immediately. I further request that, going forward, you require ebooks-tree.com to cease to offer any of my works for download on its site, including works that it currently may be offering for download without my knowledge due to its membership requirement.

Again, this information is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I declare that I am authorized to act on my own behalf as the author and owner of this material.




The more letters we send to Moniker (abuse@moniker.com), the better—and certainly better than, so I believe now, sending them to Ebooks Tree because that company is clearly engaged in phishing for credit card numbers and personal information.

Please do not give Ebooks Tree your credit card and personal information by signing up for a "free account" to see a complete list of the works it has stolen from you. Pragmatically, it doesn't matter what the company's stolen; it matters that we don't fund it by turning over our credit and personal information. Complain to Moniker; under the DMCA, it's legally obligated to remove any infringing material from its users' sites after being properly notified of the existence of such material (and there is no reason to suspect that Moniker is in any way associated with Ebooks Tree other than providing it with hosting services).


ETA: As it turns out, Moniker is the company that sold Ebooks Tree the domains it uses. Webzilla is its hosting company. Read more here.
