My experience with Bookmate. I was approached by a woman who said she works for Bookmate and suggested I place my book onto their site. I looked into the possibility and refused. Some time later I discovered my book on bookmate website. Complaint to that woman and writing to their department that deals with copyright infringements didn't produce any result. The book is still there.
@lenna and they charge people money to read it, and you don't see one, red cent of it.
I have a feeling, Bookmate is one of the prime offenders.
If others have had similar experiences -- subscription services profiting from stolen intellectual property -- it would be great to know about it, and what steps were taken, if any, to deal with the theft.
