I'm sorry if this seems trivial, but it's important to me. A former employer of mine has used a lot of material I wrote on a web site they manage without giving me credit as the author. A lot of other people are mentioned as assisting with the publication, but I'm not mentioned as the person who wrote it. I asked them to fix this last year, and they did, but now it's back to the way it was before. I think it has to do with sour grapes on their part about the fact that I don't work there anymore...they didn't want me to leave. Is there anything I can do about this? Do I have any rights to be listed as the author of a publication I spent a year of my life writing?
