Massive Copyright Infringement / Plagiarism Alert...
UPDATE 4 - Jan 11th : After 2 DMCA notices were sent by writers whose stories were stolen, the last Mistress Ana Phylaxis book has been deleted from the Amazon catalog.

Is this an end to it? I was hoping so, but, alas, no.

The validity of my claims of copyright infringement and plagiarism are being called into question by her followers and 'fans.' Their loyalty is admirable and I do not hold any grudge against them for it. So, since my sincerity and my honesty are being called into question, I will be providing provenance for some of the stories. I may do all of my stories she stole, but I may just do a couple. The proof is lengthy and it takes up a lot of time.

I'll begin with ZOMBIE FUCKER : RELOADED. I'll start a new thread for the provenance of each story and link to a page on my website to which I will upload the screenshots, scans and annotations.

All of this is keeping me from doing what I want to do - writing. I should have been done with my novel over a month ago - then THAT Google Alert came in. Stay tuned...



UPDATE 3 - Jan 6th : After writer Master Vyle (www.houseofmastervyle.blogspot.com) sent a DMCA notice, the penultimate Mistress Ana Phylaxis book has been removed. 6 down 1 to go! A big thank you to all the bloggers and forum posters who disseminated this info. 


UPDATE 2 - Jan 3rd : Tracked down the cover artist, Juli Cady Ryan whose beautiful painting MAGICAL PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE was used for Mistress Klepto's book 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS. As I thought, she did not give permission for it to be used. The artist has sent a DMCA notice to Amazon.


UPDATE 1 - Earlier today somebody posted this alert on her 'Fan' Group on Facebook. She immediately deleted the post, banned the member and made her Group 'secret.'


Hoo, boy,

I know I've had my share of plagiarists and copyright infringers over the last few years but this one really takes the biscuit!

I discovered a case of plagiarism and copyright infringement that's bigger than anything I've seen to date.

The whole story is documented below and I am posting this here as a matter of public record. The DMCA notices for my own stories that were in two of the books have been deleted by the relevant retailers. However, four books with 100% stolen content remain available. It is my hope that now the information is being disseminated, the writers I've had problems contacting will eventually be made aware through the digital grapevine and take the approproate action.

If you know any writer who frequents either of the story sites mentioned below, please direct them to my blog to read this post - they may very well be one of the writers this low-life has stolen from and made money off.

This post is extremely long and I don't really expect anybody to read the whole thing - it's just here as a matter of public record and an attempt to spread the word since she has indicated she is not going to cease what she is doing.

So, on with the show -

Love & Rockets...
- Alex.

Dear Writers,

 
My name is Alex Severin. I'm a writer. I've come across a Literary Kleptomaniac on the internet variously named as -

 
Rebecca Geissler
Rebekah Geissler
Becky Geissler
Rebecca Bick
Rebekah Bick
Ana Phylaxis
M. Ana Phylaxis
Mistress Ana Phylaxis
BizarreBettyXXX (she claims this is her publishing house.)
Byronee (this is actually a character from one of the stolen stories below.)

 
She steals stories (erotica, mind control, fetish and erotic horror,) puts them in book form and sells them on Amazon. So far, there are 7 books. Every story is plagiarized and copyright infringed.

 
I already had her store on LuLu.com shut down. She was using them to POD paperbacks and selling them at nearly $21 a pop.

 
If you have work on Literotica.com or ASSTR.org, please read through the list below and look for your name. If you don't see your name, I'm sure you will recognize plenty of other names listed. Please pass on this info to your fellow writers, post it on your blog, your social network sites etc.

 
She has looted both Literotica and ASSTR. She stole 8 of my stories from my own website and a very old e-zine my work is in. Five of those she put into books. The other 3 she was earning per-1000-clicks payments via Yahoo! Associated Content.

 
I sent DMCA notices to Amazon.com regarding the two books my stories were in and they have have since been deleted from the site, so, if your story was in NECROLUST : IN THE FLESH or NECROPOLIS you don't need to take any action. 13 WOMEN has also been deleted after 'Phineas' whose story YAMARA was stolen from Literotica, sent Amazon a DMCA notice. Currently, four books remain available.

 
If your story/stories is/are in any of the other four books, I would recommend sending Amazon a DMCA notice. If you don't know how to do this, click on the link below, copy and paste the DMCA form and just fill in all the areas that contain UPPER CASE INSTRUCTIONS, like so, with your own details.

 

 


And send it to Amazon.com's Copyright & Trademark Agent at copyright@amazon.com


Use DMCA NOTICE - COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT as your e-mail subject line.

 

 
Any questions you might have or further help you may need with the DMCA notice, don't hesitate to contact me at Alex@NOSPAMAlexSeverin.com (Remove NOSPAM before sending e-mail, of course.)

 
I've listed the plagiarized and copyright infringed stories and writers, book by book. It's a long list. I've linked to all the Amazon buy pages that remain (of course, a few of them are gone now but I've uploaded a few screen-shots.)

 
Also, since Facebook doesn't seem to care that she is linking to buy illegal content (a contravention of their own Rights and Responsibilities for users,) feel free to send a note to Facebook requesting they shut down her 'fan' group. Just let them know that she's linking to illegal content in the form of copyright infringed / plagiarized stories and offering them for sale via her group page. I sent her a Cease & Desist Order, since she clearly wasn't going to stop and kept releasing books even after I had started taking her down, (including stealing more on my stories!) She closed her 'fan' page on Facebook and locked down her 'fan' group. She's now claiming 'her' stories have been 'stolen' and that she is working with the FBI on the matter.

 
Just as an aside, I wouldn't recommend interacting with her. She informed me I was affecting her PTSD, she is poor and innocent and that I am actually victimizing HER. She told me she has no money and that legal action against her will cost me more than it will her. I felt obliged to inform her when I mentioned 'legal action' that she misunderstood – I am not suing her personally – I am seeking her prosecution. I never heard back from her after that.

 
This is the URL of her Facebook group -

 

 


She also has another facebook page, 'Facebook.com/Becky.Geissler' (This is also her, but she claims it is her 'slave.' The display names she uses on her group are 'Mistress Ana Phylaxis' and 'Anaphylactic Shock.'

 
This person has made money off all of us – perhaps not a fortune, but enough that she continues to do it even after she has been caught.

 
The reason I'm sending this to the individual websites involved is this – I contacted all the writers in the first three books and only received one responses out of a dozen writers. Many of these stories have been online for ten years or more and some of the accounts haven't been modified for many years. I thought my best bet was to try and get the two main sites on board to send out this letter via their own newsletters, forums and social networks. Also, anybody reading this please feel free to disseminate it, or the information within, anywhere you deem appropriate. I would like this plagiarist publicly exposed.

 
I got a call on 21st December from the Copyright and Trademark Agent at Amazon, Adrian Garver and it would appear Mistress Ana Phylaxis is going to try and challenge my DMCA notices. She informed Mr. Garver that she started writing the book in 1993 and first published it in 1997. She didn't actually say which book she was talking about.

 
Here's the book and story list...

 
Title : NECROLUST : IN THE FLESH [I sent a DMCA notice regarding this book and it has now been deleted from the Amazon catalog.]

 
The buy page is gone now, but here are some screen-shots :
