Book Of Stolen Content Becomes #1 Bestseller
- Published: 23 November 2017
- 2018 UPDATE: The authors have now started selling the books with a couple pages of credit in the back. This was not the case for the first couple months of the book being available and it wasn't until they received public backlash that they decided to take like 4 hours to compile the list. But, better late than never I guess. Good on them for doing that. This video served it's purpose, and is kind of moot at this point. You can still watch it though if you want.
I know for some of you this is old news. Because of other obstacles, it took me way longer to finish this video than I was hoping it would. But since, to my knowledge, no one has made a video about this book yet, and the people who wrote it have STILL not done anything to correct their mistakes, I figured this was still worth posting a couple weeks after the fact.
Like I tried to make clear in the video, my intention is not to make fun of this book. I think it's a cool idea. But I just don't think it's right for two people to "write" what is basically just a book of quotes, not give credit as to where any of the quotes are from, and then keep 100% of the profits while ignoring the enormous amount of backlash they have received. And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
The vine at 15:47 is not by Regaljoe, and I feel very silly for thinking that it was just because I saw the name Trey. Oh well. Pretty sure I got the rest of them right.
Sarah Schauer, for leading the charge on this.
I also reference a tweet by Miel, so follow her too if you would like to do that.
Apologies if the audio is a little weird in this. I bought an actual microphone to use in these videos and it stopped recording like halfway through so the rest of the video is with my phone's microphone. I'm still figuring out how to youtube.
Want to support my channel while also getting a sweet customized video in return?

Here is a link to the book if you feel so inclined to buy it.
I'm not going to link the author's twitters because my intention is not to send an army of little stinkers to their DMs with a bunch of hate messages. Seriously, don't do that. I've already made my point.
