This question already has an answer here:

One of my SE comrades stumbled across a book on Amazon which seems to basically be a direct ripoff of questions & answers posted to Stack Exchange. Upon further investigation, it appears that the "author" is actually trying to make a career out of this...

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=dp_byline_sr_book_1?ie=UTF8&text=George+A+Duckett&search-alias=books&field-author=George+A+Duckett&sort=relevancerank

Seems pretty shady to me, so I was wondering: is this even legal?


I've seen a related thread, but I don't believe this is a dupe. That thread is asking about royalties for using specific questions/answers, whereas this guy on Amazon seems to be wholesale copying entire branches of Stack Exchange.

  • Good find, thanks @animuson! I searched Meta, but that question didn't turn up. (I guess because I searched the word "book" instead of "ebook".) – Lindsey D Feb 2 '16 at 21:08
