Hello,

I do apologize if I'm stepping out of bounds but I would like to report that a story I posted on other sites was posted here by another user who has since blocked me.

'Author' who stole my work: OdieTheCutePuppy Stolen Work: The Howling

The story was left off this site on my FFN due to the hard NC-17 scenes and questionable content. I have reported the story twice and emailed the support email. No response yet. Based on chapter 6, it looks like they're copying the story from adultfanfiction.net which is where I originally posted the story.

Link (you'll have to remove the parenthesis: hp(.)adult-fanfiction(.)org/story(.)php?no=600025023&chapter=6

Addition: It now appears they stole the work from yamiyugi23's AFFN work Harry Potter and Winged Werewolves and posted it as their own Harry Potter and his WW.

Thief re-orders the chapters of original. Chapter 1 matches to chapter 2; chapter 2 matches to chapter 1. Chapters 3, 4, 5 are as ordered in the AFF original. Chapter 6 stolen is chapter 8 original. Chapter 7 matches, but chapter 8 is chapter 6 original.

Defenders?

LoverOfRedheads chapter 6 . Nov 10

Maybe this plagiarizer will actually finish this story since the original author doesn't seem to give a shit anymore.

Not sure if you're the original author but I remember reading this story years ago and feeling sad that this was abandoned. I hope you'll be extending the story

Other than OA calling plagiarist out on SID 13737203, other reviews on non-trollfic are guest reviews. The ones on SID 13742877 are particularly asinine.

*ahem* Xing! Over here! SID 13742877 review board is broken like the other examples I e-mailed. You whitewash links, please whitewash strings greater than whatever your wraparound constant is – or find a method of making your wraparound constant a variable.

Links you can use to play with your code and not make anyone mad:

(Why, yes, that does prove the plagiarist left the reviews herself.)

I didn't find an AFF account under either of the pen names. Still, a notice will be sent to them.



20 Nov 2020: Marked resolved as no plagiarism currently exists on account 13429823. However, f/u with admins is warranted as both accounts belong to same person; statements in screen captures.

Sent an DCMA email. Hopefully I get a response soon. Still no response from the original email to account.

RogueMudblood,

Zach got to the DMCA complaint (listed as #349735) and has deleted the story/author profile though the WereHarry account is still active despite the statements claiming she was under 13.

Thank you all for the tips and laid out steps to report copyright claims!

I am so very glad to hear that at least the Odie account has been taken care of and the plagiarism removed. I will follow up with Xing & co on the WereHarry and point out again the claiming of each other that was done on both accounts in images.

Thank you all for the tips and laid out steps to report copyright claims!

You're very welcome. I'm glad we were able to help. :)

FFN site admins have removed account 13429823 - WereHarry.

So I can't be 100% sure but I'm guessing the person decided to come out of hiding. I got a guest review on an old story, stating they heard from their friend that their accounts were deleted.

I did want to laugh when they stated that the Odie author gave credit to the original author. The rest of the 'review' tried to give reasoning for why they plagiarized which you can probably guess but they did mention the plagiarizer got out a new book title "The Rise Of RavenClan".

After running a search on FFN, I found there's a story already on the site by StarLightRaven-dead. Not sure if this story might be plagiarized soon under a new name or if it was one of the two accounts that were deleted but I wanted to bring it to your attention if it does pop up.

I'm planning to post the review to FFN anyway. It does bump up the review count. XD

Well, the only other copy I found of that particular posting was on DA, posted the same day as this one. FFN's whitewash doesn't let me see the user name they linked on their profile to their DA account, but I'd guess it's ShadowAmyshadamy. That profile links back to FFN UID 4236402 (same account you linked). I don't suppose they gave any kind of hint on a user name on the anon review? Anything besides "guest"?

And I'm hoping that was left here on FFN and not on AFF with this one's professed age.
