The whole concept of Scribd seems highly problematic. I read several articles during my searching that revealed a number of big name authors having their work uploaded illegally to the site. Take into account comments on Paperback Writer's article that even if people remove their content, Scribd may still retain a backup copy that's presented to users, I'm wondering if Scary Mary will vanish from the site. I'm not upset yet about this, but if it becomes a true battle to get my work taken down, I will become very angry.
The copy of SM that was uploaded was the one from Smashwords. Front and center, there's my copyright notice, which reads,
"Smashwords Edition, License Notes:

Wish I knew what the user was thinking uploading my story. The person on Wattpad claimed they were uploading it to share with a friend. The person here has no information in her bio. Scary Mary appears to be the only thing she has uploaded. I will try to pursue contacting her first with a request to take it down, but not sure what that will involve. I can't see a way to direct message her, unless through Facebook? I have a Facebook account, but it's for personal use. Don't really want to use it for writing business. Well, we'll see I guess. I won't really be able to do anything until this upgrade of whatever is finished.
