I have been alerted to the fact that one of my fanfiction stories posted both here and on AO3 has been appropriated by a for-profit website.

I have requested that my work be taken off their site or appropriate action will be taken.

For all my author friends, please check that your own works haven't been taken as well.


UPDATE: Someone on Tumblr has kindly set up a How-To on asking for your works to be deleted from the site.

Is there a way to check without registering?

I did a search on my user name and it came up with a result, but I am a bit reluctant to register with them.

I didn't register with them. When I did the search and found my fic I used the contact email to demand my work be taken down. They have a tab at the bottom of the page for contact. They also have DMCA tab about copyrite.

Thanks for replying.

I couldn't actually tell if it was one of my fics or not, I just got a hit on my user name - how did you identify yours?

When I typed in my name, one of my stories came up as a pdf. I didn't download it, because well, not paying for my own stuff.

Ok, thanks

I checked again and it said Books (0)but then it said there is a PDF for download *confused now*

Thanks for the help.

Unbelievable! They got eight of mine! Thanks for the heads up. I'm definitely going to file a complaint with them as per the instructions in the Tumblr, and I hope everyone else does too!

I filed a complaint. I just don't understand why when they are already available at AO3 for free - in multiple formats INCLUDING PDF. So stupid. Really. *sigh*
