  1. I have to wonder how the book was actually able to become a book instead of staying in the form of nasty internet comments. I’m assuming it was self-published because any publishing company worth their salt would make an author get a release for all photos used in a prospective book. Is it common for a work containing stolen photographs to get this far down the publishing pipeline?
