Piracy of SATIN PLEASURES by Karen Docter

It has been brought to my attention that my romantic comedy novel, SATIN PLEASURES, has been pirated at several sites on the internet. My book is currently only available for sale at Amazon in ebook and paperback forms, and at Barnes and Noble in ebook format. I intend to make the book available at Smashwords, Kobo, and Apple, but f you see my book up at any other site, including the following I know about, these are unauthorized distributions:

mobilism.org
fileband.com
uplly.com
rapidgator.net

I have taken steps to ask mobilism.org to cease and desist. I’m copying the email I sent to them and posted on Facebook and Twitter.

After sending the above email, I was told SATIN PLEASURES was on at least three other sites (three mentioned above). It has become clear to me this is not something I can take care of by myself, so I’ve now registered with MUSO to watchdog my titles and send “take down” emails to those who would pirate my work. It is my right and responsibility to protect my work from unapproved dissemination and I will do everything in my personal and legal power to ensure my rights are protected, including notification of the FBI.

Please feel free to send me an email kldocter@yahoo.com if you discover any of my work on a site you suspect is not legitimate.

I thank you all for helping me to protect my copyright.

Thank you.

      Thanks, Cathy. It’s been a disheartening 24 hours since I discovered the piracy. But, getting it under control. This morning, MUSO identified two of the others and sent them notices to take down my work. I don’t like having to spend my hard earned money on this problem but I have no choice. Good luck yourself! Hope you don’t have to confront the problem, too! 🙂
