So this guy is selling collections of Creepypasta stories that he lifted from the internet. He claims they're all CC-BY-SA, yet I'm pretty sure that Abandoned by Disney is on the Wikia as CC-BY-NC. I know you've had issues with copyright infringement before, so it seemed weird to see your story listed among the table of contents.

Link is here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Creepypasta-definitive-guide-Terrifying-Internet/dp/1512021946/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1460795090&sr=1-1

Oddly, the price is currently $1872.21, so it seems like there are some other weird issues with this book at the moment. Still, it has some reviews, so obviously people purchased it at one point.

I had Amazon take this down. Looks like he put it back up somehow. (That or Amazon fucked up.)

Thanks a ton for letting me know!!

I recently posted a book of the Abandoned by Disney stories. The whole thing with someone Trademarking "Creepypasta" made me want to test their claims that they wouldn't enforce it. ;)
