If someone who copied your work tried to 'friend' you on facebook, what would you do?
I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because maybe he was just ignorant of copyright law, so I left a comment on the blog of a person who'd copied my article word-for-word. Instead of an apology, I got a rude note calling me a fraud for wanting to earn money off my work.
The irony of his nasty note is that he has no qualms about using my writing to earn money with his donation button placed right at the end of it.
How would you respond to his facebook friend request? If my question seems stupid or weird please remember I'm autistic. Rude remarks will be deleted.
Tell the person that a copyright infringement was committed and that is a violation of the copyright rules, regulations and law. It could result in a lawsuit unless permission was granted and some type of monetary sharing was arranged regarding the information unlawfully used..
Because of my poor political skills, I would not accept his friend request. If I were really good, I would accept it use it to spread the word about what he's really like. At the very least, I hope you can sue the crap out of him!
P.S. you're most likely aware he wants to friend you so he can have even more access to your work.
