 jopadownloads appears to be a phishing site. I have heard that they have no ebooks. Don't rush to send DMCAs. On the other hand, if you object to your name and your titles being used as lures by phishing sites, you might report them to Google and the reputable search engines.

We can learn from the music industry experience. It doesn't seem fair that musicians who performed prior to the early 1970's get no royalties on their music (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones etc) while for profit enterprises such as Sirius exploit the "free" music. Can the wrinkly rockers put the genie back in the bottle?
