The latest on the matter of content theft and infringement on my copyright.
I did send a Facebook message to Amebor.com… did this prior my putting up the theft post yesterday and immediately after. I saw a reply today. Apologies, which were not only flimsy and dishonest, but definitely too late. The harm had been done!
Well, the bottomline is that all pages with my story TAKE ME AS I AM have been removed. I did not quickly know how to report this to Facebook and I believe he/she got away lightly. But there are still other stories by Nairaland writers on the page and I advice writers who post their work there to go check it out and maybe one of us can really make him pay.
Amebor Gist a common thief. Taking without Permission is Stealing!!!
You are a common thief if you use a copyrighted work without permission… whether or not you list the owner’s name.
That is how I see it. And that is why I clearly state in my copyright messages – do not use without prior permission from TM David-West.
AMEBOR GIST is in my opinion a petty thief.
I just discovered that the owner of the Facebook page posted TAKE ME AS I AM between October 25, 2014 and November 7, 2014. These are the links … https://www.facebook.com/ameborgist/posts/399108973572429 and https://www.facebook.com/ameborgist/posts/404650889684904
Somehow I can’t get the Prologue page to open but it is there.
Change is the law of life.
And those who look only to the past or the present are
certain to miss the future.

Moral — Never think you have seen it all, change can always happen.
The reason some (people) do not succeed
is because their wishbone is where
their backbone ought to be.
Moral — *this actually cracked me up, I must confess and the moral is quite easy to fathom* Don’t wish for success, WORK to succeed.
I have been absent for about a week now. It was on purpose.
Winston Churchill said: He who fails to plan is planning to fail.
I found myself thinking along those lines in the past week. Mostly thinking about it with regards to my writing and what are my desires and ‘plans‘ for it.
I love to write. More than writing, I love to think up story lines and to see them take life in my mind’s eye. It is my greatest pleasure sitting in a place and seeing events unfold before my eyes without no one else seeing them. Hearing conversations in my head no one else can hear… not looney conversations, mind you, lol.
