Hypothetical Question

This is a message board. Someone takes every message from this board and writes a book based on the discussions in this forum, at times he uses direct quotes from things we posted here.

He copyrights the work as his, gets it published, etc. etc.

He makes $800 million dollars as his book becomes a bestseller for 37 consecutive months.

He has posted something that I actually wrote. I recognize it and trace it to the web forum.

Can I sue the writer and be reimbursed for my contribution to the book?
