I recently found an old poem of mine titled Rebirth of A Nation on Poetry.com My name is listed under the title of this poem, but at the end of it another persons name is listed with the words copyrighted 2009
Is this person breaking the law?
There is also an add stating that my poem could be purchased on a plaque, tee shirt and other items if anyone cares to do so.
Shouldn't I be entitled to any revenue generated by MY POEM?
What rights do I have and how do I go about stopping this guy Christian Watkins from doing what he is doing?
In the past I have given people permission to use my poem for school projects. Maybe i had the wool pulled over my eyes by one of them, but that won't happen again.
Make sure that they know you've got it copyrighted, Paul. Also, if you've got it posted here at PiP, it'll be time-dated. That alone is your proof of authorship. You've got everything on your side, so be persistent if you have to. It'll work out for you in the end.. Good luck..

Nan...Thanks, it's posted in the Poetry of life Attack on America Section and also in the top 100 poems. I can't really remember but I may have posted it on the Poetry.com site but that doesn't give this person the right to put his name on it...Paul
