How E-Book Marketplaces Can Prevent Copyright Infringement

Ebook marketplaces are great for self published authors who want to share their works with the rest of the world. However, they do have some copyright infringement considerations.

Now that it has recently come to light that many erotic books sold on Amazons electronic book publishing platform contained content that was copied from other books and websites found online, there are many who are speculating as to how exactly online marketplaces that sell eBooks can prevent infringing content from being sold on their sites.It is important that websites that allow self published authors to sell eBooks on their platform implement measures to prevent copied content from being sold, as this could have an impact on the reputation of the platform and the entire electronic book publishing industry as a whole.There are several proposed solutions to this problem: Have clear policies on copyright infringement.Platforms that sell eBooks on the internet need to make it clear to those who make eBooks available through them that they will not tolerate infringing content on their platforms.Appropriate action needs to be taken against those who sell pirated material.Reports indicate that Amazon simply removed the adult Romance Books that contained content that was copied word for word from free websites without actually banning the account in question.Ebook platforms need to take reasonable steps when a complaint for infringing content is received.A case of an eBook where the author may have unknowingly included a copyrighted image in their book is obviously different from someone who has uploaded dozens of eBooks for sale which were copied word for word from other material found online.If possible, works that have been submitted for sale through the platform should be reviewed by humans before being allowed for sale.Look for warning signs such as a description that is written in poor quality English accompanying content that appears to be professionally written.There are also plenty of software solutions which can be used to combat plagiarism.These check the text of eBooks against materials published online, as well as a database of published physical books.Such systems are widely available and are already used by universities around the world to combat plagiarism.It is by having a zero tolerance policy towards blatant plagiarismFree Web ContentFind Article, plus the use of human verifiers and automated tools that a website can ensure that works submitted by authors are truly their own work.This in turn can have a positive effect on the eBook industry as a whole and increase consumer confidence who will know that the reading material they purchased online is truly original.
