Seth Godin Ripped Off

I can’t believe a company of the size and sophistication of Amazon could sell a book, by best-selling author Seth Godin, without his permission AND pass it off as new. Quality control? Check it out on Seth’s Blog

I didn’t authorize this book to be published, I have no idea who the publisher is and I certainly didn’t ask Amazon to email anyone.

Do download the ebook (for free!) from Seths site. It’s thought-provoking stuff.

The problem is Amazon, and whoever posted the book up, didn’t actually do anything legally wrong. Seth made the mistake when he licensed the ebook licensed under a certain Creative Commons license that specifically allows for for-profit distribution.

  1. Seth and everyone else keeps crying foul on this and blaming third parties but it is his own fault for not understanding the terms of the creative commons license he chose.
