Let me make this PERFECTLY CLEAR. I do not republish my works on fictionpress.com for the COPYRIGHTED songs to be stolen and virtually "reposessed" (since noone credits me, the owner). Therefore, all the older works have been removed to protect them. And, for those of you who have stolen my works and placed them outside of fictionpress.com, don't think it went unspotted. I get HUNDREDS of e-mails from people who spot my works, and I find your sites with my works posted...word for word as it is published here. You won't be so thrilled to take from me when you find a copyright lawsuit in your mailbox in a few days. Yes! You know what that means. You should've thought of that before the incident of copying my work. Any future submissions I have will remain on fictionpress.com for 24 hours after submission, and then it will be removed. I can't believe some of you are that unmindful of the law. There is a difference between consented use and theft. Remember this when you attempt to take someone else's works from fictionpress.com, or any other site.
