Invoice Pollock, the founding father of the tech how-to ebook writer No Starch Press, referred to as out Amazon on February 13 for promoting what he says are counterfeit copies of his firm’s ebook, The Artwork of Meeting Language—copies that Amazon apparently printed.
Simply found right this moment a brand new case of copyright infringement straight by AMAZON’S CREATESPACE. Not the primary time! That is clearly NOT printed by No Starch. Kindly report some other instances to us. Please RT and share. @amazon @nostarch pic.twitter.com/ayjebwTiOI

After Pollock’s put up on Twitter on Wednesday, different folks posted footage of different No Starch books that had been counterfeited by means of Amazon, together with books that had pages poorly lower. What’s even crazier is that this is not the primary time this has occurred.
In 2017, Pollock bought experiences of Amazon promoting counterfeit copies of Python for Youngsters, a preferred kids’s introduction to programming, and 4 different No Starch titles. The books had been simple to differentiate from No Starch’s manufacturing runs due to the poorer high quality of the paper and binding, adjustments seemingly ensuing from Amazon’s print-on-demand manufacturing.
