: I found some of my earlier work plagiarized and used in a very popular Internet marketing course. (Hint: Costs $197.00 and has an army of online resellers.) The "author" has actually made millions online with this and other products.
: I can establish that my original work was published in a national publication before he published his product containing snippets of my material..
: It's not a substantial amount of material, less than a full page. Some of it is word for word as I created it, too close to be coincidental.
: Any recommendations?
Marty, your post does not indicate how and where you work was published. You work may already be subject to copyright protection if the publisher filed for copyright protection for the whole publication in which your work appeared. I would be glad to visit with you about your problem.
