Following up the copyright infringement of our work

Our publisher Mystical Life Publications (MLP) is currently focusing as a team on following up cases where our work has been plagiarized. There has already been a great effort to find the sites where our work has been copied or posted without attribution or permission. Thank you to all of you who’ve contributed – it’s been such a wonderful help, which I personally greatly appreciate.

Now they are methodically working through them all, getting through the backlog of nearly 1,000 cases, which had built up over the years during the time we had our free eBooks available, and many more articles posted on this site (without copy paste protection for much of the time). They’ve already resolved a few hundred of them, which is great to see. In the next few months, they expect to have most cases resolved, which will be great to have done and out of the way.

Here is the blog update they’ve written about it. Following up copyright infringement

For anyone new to this issue, I’ve written about it before in:

    It is a mammoth task to work through all those cases of plagiarism – it sounds as though there have been many over time and that MLP have been going through them gradually…

    Pity it has meant that valuable articles and information by Belsebuub and Lara has had to be removed – having access to printed versions is useful though…

    Thanks for the update Lara. What a great team effort. All the very best with getting this issue out of the way so you can move forward with getting this work out there, in its pure form, to those who can benefit spiritually.

    Hi Lara and MLP team,

    I wish you great success in tackling this issue so that for the future this important information can be shared in a pure and complete way, without others taking advantage of it and subsequently diluting the message for people that are truly looking for real spiritual information. I hope this will go swiftly so as for you to focus more time on other projects as well!

    Thanks Lara for the update- it is a shame that it has come to this, however it really shows the state of humanity and what lengths people will go to.
    Glad to hear of how it is progressing. All the best MLP with this task.

    Thanks very much for the update on the issue of copyright infringement Lara. It is great to hear that MLP are now making good progress in resolving the outstanding cases, which when completed, should hopefully allow them more time to dedicate to publishing new works from you and Mark, as well as supporting the other new projects, such as the Sakro Sawel video series.

    Thanks very much to you and Mark for your continued persistence in getting the message of light out to the world, despite the many obstacles along the way.

    This is a great update, Lara.

    The amount of work by those involved is very impressive considering the sheer volume of plagarising involved.

    I hope that their goals can be achieved and the known cases resolved as soon as possible.

    Best wishes to all!

    Thanks for the update Lara. It sounds like significant progress is being made with this issue and I hope it will be brought to an end completely. It’s hugely time consuming and can be rather frustrating to work through I imagine so it’s great that the time will be freed for the other urgent and very important work that you and MLP do.

    Wishing you much strength!

    Go MLP! This is a very important job to do, so great to see it’ll be all tied up in the next couple months then once and for all.

    Thanks for the update Lara. What a mammoth job to fix the issue, great to know that you’re getting on top of it.

    Hopefully the focus the spread the religion of the Sun will resume in full strength soon.

    Thanks for reposting this Lara. I hadn’t read that yet and found it nice to hear. Wishing the team at MLP a lot of good and swift results with their renewed effort and approach. It would seem great be able to write and work with the threat of plagiarism being less prominent, hopefully all ongoing efforts will contribute to creating such a stage, in as far as possible.

    It’s probably not a whole topic to get into here now (though I do a little) and those linked articles explain things in a very good way. But something that has worried me again on a few instances recently were possible cases of a silent? plagiarism. Where you can’t easily point to copy pasted paragraphs, but where, possibly, a unique concept or connection (perhaps gained through esoteric knowledge) is taken by someone without giving credit, then more people, and then is ‘assimilated’ and becomes part of general ideas. In a way it’s a natural process this spreading of ideas (I’m not giving any references when generally speaking to the person who had the idea that the Earth is round for example, and in fact I don’t even know who that would be.)
    But it’s not okay, when this information acquired was to serve as a map, as the structure of a pyramid, as well as to give the author due recognition. Yet by taking individual pieces from it (enticing as these are) the full picture is again lost. The blocks of the pyramid taken don’t allow it to be built. And the author without a position unable to help people unaware of him.

    Of course there’s also people’s lack of interest in the spiritual side of life. But the whole situation of this information not having been able to grow, which in turn has not allowed it to give people a chance and allowed it to really grow… It’s just that I think things could’ve been spectacularly different. But I hope to help and don’t want to give up :-)! Thanks MLP and everyone who keeps going.

    It’s a big job and a pity that it’s required, thanks for the update Lara.

    Hi Lara,

    Forgive my ignorance but if i may make a suggestion. It appears you and the team are aware of writers like graham hancock that have a huge public reach and influence who seem like genuine individuals seeking truth on humanity , why dont you contact or make an attempt to meet people like him to have a dialogue so that people can know about the esoteric side of reality and wonderful teachings of belsebuub and modern gnosis! I cant believe this precious teaching is here and available for anyone to take up but 99% of the humanity has no idea about it! It deeply saddens me because although there are many that love the material and their egos strongly i truly believe there are many people that are also searching for the truth and are restless in their souls. Thats why so many people get duped by these profit gurus and alternative spirituality and its also a telling why so many people are fascinated by conspiracies , it shows they are looking for truth and the real! How wonderful it would be if there were gnostic communites all over the world doing this work and giving strength to each other ! Divinity help us all, my hope hangs by the string in this dark and heavy times. I practice awareness and to activate my consciousness but its very difficult when everything around you conspires devour the tiny light you keep trying to spark.

    Thank you Lara for the update
    It’s very encouraging there is a progress on this matter and a better way to deal with these cases. in the future.
    Thanks also to MLP and those who help to find those cases. Looks like, with teamwork, obstacles can be faced properly and there are chances to be overcomed.

    All the best carrying on with this issue! I’ll will also check if I can find any new case. It’s usually near equinoxes and solstices. when people having events or write articles about them, that I have noticed they are using yours and Mark’s material to enrich them, so I’ll focus on those periods.
