Not a hoax.
Today, due to the misfortune of another author, I discovered a website offering free downloads of my book. While the book is definitely not a best-seller and the royalties have yet to allow me to even think about quitting my day job, it is the principle causing me to guard my intellectual property rights. I have written the contact address of the website (leakbook.info) requesting the immediate removal of my intellectual property.
I will provide a free signed copy of my book, Lifting the Veil on the Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men, to the first person sending an email to me with the link to any other website illegally offering my book for sale, for free viewing , or any other use not consistent with applicable copyright laws.
Thank you for your time and attention,
Dae Mu-ye (aka King Mu,) was the second king of the Balhae state from 718 – 737 CE. Although claimed by the Chinese as a Chinese state, Balhae was established by former Goguryeo general Dae Jo-yeong (father of Dae Mu-ye) after defeating the Tang forces at Tianmenling in 698 CE. Goguryeo was a Korean kingdom from 37 BCE to 668 CE and the shortened form of the name, Goryeo, is where the English, Korea, comes from.
