Piracy Heads Up
This post is just a bit of a heads up to people trying to avoid piracy. I was recently browsing my Google Feed on my smartphone when I encountered a site that hosted a collection of free comic books called GetComics.
I've heard that Marvel and DC occasionally do a free comic book day, so I thought that this was an archive of past free comic book day comics seeing as it was included in an official story on Google Feed. So I downloaded a few comics to see if this was the case and low and behold, it appears that these comics might be hosted and distributed illegally.
One of the reasons that I took Shhhh! Digital Media down was because it had become a victim of rampant piracy and efforts to steal my identity, my creative properties and many other aspects of my life as well. My books were being recredited to people that have nothing to do with them and I was literally being stalked and socially abused by people for things that have nothing to do with myself.
So I recently checked out the rest of the GetComics site, hoping to find that I was wrong but low and behold it seems to be an archive illegally shared comics. Not only that but it also includes a direct allusion to my life from a very short poem that I wrote in 2002 called Us and We.
The poem goes: There is no I in us or we. I had it published on my poetry and fiction website (which I also took down). I also published it years ago in 2002 back when I was working for Ferretina Film Productions Ltd.
Here's what the author of the site had posted:
There are no me, or you in GetComics. It just only “WE” or “US”.
