my name exposed, content stolen

Postby stolen » Tue Jan 24, 2012 5:46 pm

I wrote a bit for demand, a long time ago. Always under a moniker. Never gave them permission to use my real name.

When their new agreement came out, I did not sign it. I did not want to agree to them 'owning' my bio.

Now, to my absolute shock, I discover that my articles have my REAL NAME attached to them, and to make matters worse, they added to that my real bio which they STOLE FROM MY PERSONAL WEBSITE.

I sent messages to their help desks and editorial. But I am seething. I sent them a cease and desist. If they will not comply ASAP, I will follow up with a DMCA complaint and a Google complaint, as well as contact their advertisors. Am I forgetting anything? Any advice on the best way to do all this?

I'm not surprised. They have my name plastered to all kinds of foreign-language content crap that I never wrote. You should spend a few Benjamins on an attorney, imo.

It's probably not appropriate for a DMCA or Google complaint. If you want, PM me a link to your bio on your website and a link to a DMS page with the info. I might be able to give you some ideas. But, no one is going to be able to help you without more information.

Your best bet is to hire an attorney for a couple of hundred dollars. You may need a nice little nasty gram on law firm letterhead or an attorney phone call. Shouldn't take much more than that.

I don't want to expose myself any further. Demand was a side experiment for me, just trying out a new venture to see what will come of it. When I saw what they were about - disrespect to professionals, pathetic pay, crazy CEs who change what you've written without asking, I quit. They could have had me write good articles without that crazy format and not make changes to my articles without my knowledge or consent. Instead...well, we all know what they're like, right?

So you guys are saying this is not news? They stole and used my professional name without my permission. They did it knowingly and maliciously. Let's just say that I'm not a burger flipper and they stood to benefit from using my name.

Well, whaddayaknow, they replied to my cease and desist and will hopefully remove my name and bio without need for further steps.

I'm glad it worked out for you. If they don't take it down in a timely fashion, go the lawyer route. A message on legal letterhead has a much bigger impact. Trust me. I've sent and received lots of them. A phone call from a lawyer to corporate counsel is also a good, quick way to fix these issues that neither side wants to litigate.
