I don't think this book getting plagiarized or republished illegaly for profit will ever be an issue.Funny thing, looking in the copyright section of the book, it says that the work is protected under "common law" copyright. Doing some research, I found that "common law" coppyright is something that only applies to unpublished works created prior to 1978 (book was published in 2008 ). As side from Roy not knowing how copyright law works, this means that he never bothered to actually register the copyright to his book with the copyright office (which would explain why I couldn't find it in the database).
I don't know about you, but if I published a book, I'd actually bother to register it's copyright before I published it.
from legalbeagleA copyright is automatically in effect when an author writes a book, and gives the author control of his work. The author can gain certain legal advantages in infringement suits by registering the copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office.
Yeah, I believe that without a registered copyright, all that he can sue for is provable damages.
While I was looking through his history, I noticed that one of the posts he commented on was about a written response he made to the Tesla incident. It was hosted on his main blog but had been removed along with all his other posts. When I tried to look for an archive, I was greeted with this:I'll leave this here for interested parties:
Edit: (didn't want to triple post)
I don't think that this knowledge is new, considering that I found it with a simple Google search, but I believe that I've found Roy's reddit account: u/rphilipose
With his most recent comment, he mentions his copyright claim to the Tesla video, so it confirms that Roy is a copystriking faggot.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, didn’t you hear what he said, he did NOT want a CEO a position, just a sales associate one!
I'm assuming you meant to say 'copyrighted'. Copywriting has nothing to do with what's being discussed here unless Mr. Level 12 Super Genius paid someone a lot of money to write a sales pitch for all his bullshit.
