    Parodies are covered but it is pretty shitty that they can use someones likeness as the basis of a book and make money from it without giving dick to them.

    Here's the thing then, they should go after the publishing company. It isn't like heavyink has anything to do with that. All they do is take solicits from the various publishers and put the books up for sale.

    They went after the "big" money, no surprise there.
