Bill Schmalfeldt recently published a book called Intentional Infliction. On pages 3 through 12 he published without permission a blog post by the pseudonymous blogger Paul Krendler. Schmalfeldt bragged that he could do so without penalty: “I doubt he will try to sue me for copyright, since he would have to review [sic] his actual name.” Mr. Krendler objected to Schmalfeldt’s misappropriation of his work and sought a way to enforce his copyright.
Mr. Krendler has sold the world book and ebook rights to the web posting in question to me. He has retained all other rights. I now own the rights to publish the material in book or ebook form, and I have taken the initial steps to enforce those rights.
