I emailed this guy telling him to stop selling people's work.

Here is his response:

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for contacting me!

I'm a little puzzled though. I got the permission of the overwhelming
majority of authors featured in LayGuideto keep their work as part of
LayGuidebased on various settlements I negotiated with them almost three
years ago - and haven't had any complaints ever since. So your terse two
sentences, without any additional explanations as they are, seem to come
out of literally nowhere. Unless we have a case of false representation
here, which has been rampant in recent times. You wouldn't believe how
many organizations and individuals are out there claiming to represent me
or LayGuideor Ross Jeffries etc to pursue a multitude of self-righteous
or even illegal causes (in addition to the unlawfulness of false
representation itself).

So specifically which authors do you represent and specifically which
copyrighted works of their's are we talking about here?


All the best!
