2018 LEGAL NOTICE and forward - from Paula T. Webb
For several years now, there have been instances of Internet piracy of the Mark Douglas materials. This piracy ranges from free downloads of his books, his videos, and pirated videos of his workshops. You all know that this is illegal - because his materials have always been for sale - and continue to be for sale on our website as well as Amazon.com.
Downloading, posting, sharing any materials by Mark Douglas is fraud and a crime and will culminate with litigation against you. Just because you may find Mark Douglas materials on the Internet does not allow any of you to post his materials, or use them for your own financial gain. They are not free, nor are there any legal downloads - which you already know - and are currently owned by me in entirety. This is a legal fact. If you are interested in using any of our materials, simply contact our office. We have had a "permissions" form on our website for decades - and still do.
To be clear - it doesn't matter where you find any links to our materials - I own all the Mark Douglas materials through federal/international copyrights, trademarks, and inheritance, including all foreign translations. You know it is illegal to use his materials without prior permission - otherwise you would have contacted us for permission first.
Moving forward, be advised - this piracy will be pursued extensively and financially. If you have currently posted and/or are using any materials by Mark Douglas or myself, understand that not only will I find out who you are (this is facilitated by daily e-mails sent to our office from people who respect Mark and myself, providing our legal team with your illegal links, i.p. address, website, and more) - the links will be documented forensically, printed out, and they will be removed not only from the Internet but also your website. Furthermore - your domain registrar and host provider, as well as your credit card merchant will be notified of your theft - and there will be financial restitution. These are facts, not fiction, and actions that have been accomplished and documented.
Just as importantly - our legal team now posts and updates a "Hall Of Shame" weekly on all social media. This list includes the names of all trading firms, all individuals - in other words - anyone or any organization - from Main Street to Wall Street, that has chosen to illegally pirate/post/download/teach/sell the Mark Douglas materials or imply an endorsement, or any of my materials. This public posting will allow your customers, or possible future customers - to decide if they want to work with someone or some organization that steals other people's materials.
No person or group of people, nor any organization, is legally allowed to build a business, sell a product or service, or make money - using Mark's lifetime body of work in any way, and certainly not with any type of false endorsement, implied or otherwise.
Mark Douglas never knew you, nor did he endorse any of your products or services. Nor have I. This goes specifically to those of you posting articles on social media claiming to be "experts" at his materials - but simply using his name through the search engines to build traffic to your website. You are not experts on his materials - only I am having worked with him exclusively - and we strongly suggest you stop writing articles that imply that, and/or imply an endorsement by Mark Douglas of your products and services. This will not be tolerated. In other words - do your own work. Write your own books!
Do yourself a favor and remove all postings of the Mark Douglas materials, or any materials of mine - anywhere you have posted them, including in your private rooms and social media - because it will become embarrassing for you in a very public way!
