Playster.com Playster is selling a book I hold the copyright to that was published in 1973 by Grosset and Dunlap: Winnie Ruth Judd The Trunk Murders. A google alert email took me to this site: http://dev.quabook.com/view?filename=Winnie-Ruth-Judd%3A-The-Trunk-Murders.zip&q=WINNIE+RUTH+JUDD%3A+THE+TRUNK+MURDERS&group=pro100T7&source=twig-pro-text-rewrite-tagger-d1301-1&t=435887 which then connects to Playster to sign up for a free month. It's a copyright violation! New York -Playster- Internet

Playster is in violation of copyright law for the book Winnie Ruth Judd The Trunk Murders which I and friend Robert J. Hendricks wrote and was published by Grosset and Dunlap in 1973.  My wife received a google alert thru email with a link for the free download of the ebook. 

The link took her to

It would be wonderful if a lawyer would look into this as I have lost thousands of dollars thru such Internet fraud!
