    Hi WordPress,

    I would like to inform you that the following website powered by wordpress is selling illegal copies of academic papers, including the stolen copies of my MBA thesis.

    https://e-bookdatabases.com/book/the-case-of-hong-kong

    The publications with blue copies are stolen copies. Open Dissertation Press had downloaded those theses from the website of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) Library and then uploaded it to various on-line bookstores for sale. A total of more than 30,000 copies of master and PhD theses had been stolen and this is a large scale copyright infringement. For more information please check out my website powered by wordpress:

    https://heidihong.wordpress.com/mba-thesis/

    The University of Hong Kong is taking legal action. Please do not associate yourself with a shameful ebook seller.

    Yours,
    Heidi HONG

    The blog I need help with is heidihong.wordpress.com.

    Hi there, the site you indicated e-bookdatabases.com is not hosted by WordPressdotcom, but by AbeloHost B.V. That is the web hosting provider to whom you need to submit your DMCA take down order. More information at https://en.support.wordpress.com/copyright-infringement-what-to-do/

    Best wishes.

    Hi justjennifer,

    Thks for the information. So how come e-bookdatabases.com carries the name “wordpress”? It happens by coincidence? Pls advise.

    Regards,

    That site is using the open source WordPress software to manage their site, but they are not hosted here on WordPressdotcom. “WordPress” comes in 2 flavors. This support guide explains some of the differences between them: https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Regardless, you need to direct your DMCA take down order with their web hosting provider, mentioned above.

    Good luck and best wishes.
