Outright Theft

Basically, there's a fly-by-night publisher out of Hong Kong that has scraped one or more web sites and sold the results in book form for $100 online. The publisher and ISBN info are entirely fake, as you'd expect. But the book is being carried by a real distributor, Azur, out of Japan. Azur apparently refuses to investigate the allegations of plagiarism.

Some publicity may convince them to not carry this book, though, which would be a nice start.
