My hard work is under attack by plagiarists, and I need your support to help me fix this.
If you’ve enjoyed and benefitted from the work I do with The Energy Blueprint, please support me right now, because I truly need it…
Since publishing my book “The Ultimate Guide To Red Light Therapy” on July 10th, my book has now been plagiarized over 6 times. Six different books have come out in the last two weeks that are basically just plagiarized, re-worded versions of my book (and in some cases, plagiarized material from other people’s work.) They are just hack jobs of books, clearly put together by professional plagiarists looking to make a quick buck and who have no actual expertise in the science of this topic.
(Above you can see a quick screenshot of just a few of these books that have even tried to copy my cover design.)
I’ve been studying and teaching about red and near-infrared light therapy for nearly 10 years. And I put over a year of hard work into creating my book, The Ultimate Guide to Red Light Therapy, which contains literally hundreds of scientific references, and is truly the best guide ever created on this subject. This was a labor of love that took a huge amount of time.
Now, several professional plagiarists have stolen my work and basically paid someone to re-write it and thrown a “book” together in a few days in order to try to steal business away from my book and make some money.
How do I know these books are done by professional plagiarists looking to make a quick buck?
The authors are all fake names, have no websites or places they can be found anywhere online, and most do not even have author bios (or have obviously ridiculous and fake bios, like claiming to be a “R.N.” (a nurse) and then writing that they’re a “Cardiologist” (which is only for actual physicians). Not a trace of legitimacy.
Moreover, their books are overtly copying my work (and sometimes other people’s work), have little to no scientific references, and are FULL of spelling and grammatical errors, totally nonsensical and ridiculous statements, and gross errors on the science of this subject (including recommendations that are actually DANGEROUS in some cases).
In short, it’s obvious to anyone with knowledge of this subject that they’re written by people who have little to no expertise of this subject and are obviously just plagiarists trying to steal business and make a quick buck.
It’s quite clear how they operate…
- Basically, they look for books that are selling well, and then they try to assess how saturated that particular category/niche is.
- If a new book is selling well in a category (in this case, red and near-infrared light therapy) that doesn’t already have lots of books in it, then they zero in on their opportunity to cash in.
- Then they quickly pay someone to steal the person’s work, pay a writer to quickly re-word it (so it’s not picked up by Amazon’s plagiarism filters), and then upload the books into Amazon to try to steal some piece of the business.
(In some cases, like one of the plagiarized books here, the creator of the book also uses paid services to pay people for fake reviews on your book to make it appear more legitimate. You can see the reviews are obviously fake – they are all two sentences long, full of spelling and grammatical errors, and display no understanding at all of red light therapy. They’re just from people who are part of services where they get paid to write fake reviews without even reading/using the book/product.)
Below, I’ve put actual screenshots of the examples of plagiarism by all of these plagiarists, clearly showing how they’ve copied my work (and in some cases, the work of others). (Note: I’ve put only a few examples for each book, otherwise this article would be over 100 pages long.)
So if you value the work that I do with The Energy Blueprint and The Energy Blueprint Podcast, and with my book, The Ultimate Guide To Red Light Therapy, I NEED YOUR HELP!
How You Can Help Support Me, My Work, and The Energy Blueprint
Here’s how you can help me: WRITE A REVIEW OF MY BOOK.
That’s all I need from you. If you appreciate the work I do and have benefitted from all the content I put out to the world (much of it for free), just please take 1-5 minutes out of your day to review my book. I’m specifically speaking to those of you who have actually purchased and read my book. (I appreciate those of you who want to write reviews about ME personally, but in this case, the reviews need to be from people who have actually purchased the book, so they show up with “Verfied Purchase” next to them.)
- Over 15,000 of you reading this have bought my book. But as of September 10th, only 129 people (out of 15,000) have taken the time to write me a review.
- The most important thing you can do right now to help me is to go to MY book and write me a review about your experience with the book. The more reviews I get on my book, the bigger the distinction there is between my REAL book vs. all these plagiarized books by professional plagiarists. (Again, please be aware that I want REAL reviews from people who have actually purchased and read my book. Please do not write a review unless you have actually bought and read the book.)
So again, please take a couple minutes out of your day to write me a review. You can do that by clicking HERE to write a review for my book, The Ultimate Guide To Red Light Therapy.
Note: I want real reviews from those of you who have bought and read the book. Please purchase the book first if you haven’t already (so that your review shows as “Verified Purchase” in Amazon.) And again, I want real reviews from people who have actually read my book. Please also keep your reviews focused on the book itself, rather than me as a person (though I certainly appreciate all the nice things that so many of you have said about me and my work).
(Some of you have asked if you should go and write negative reviews of these other books noting that they’re plagiarized. I will not ask that of you and I think there is no need to do that. Much more importantly is that you write a review on my book, so that people can see that it’s a REAL book with real content of value, not just a piece of plagiarized garbage like these other books.)
I’ve dedicated the last 10 years of my life to helping people to recover their health and energy levels. Our goal with The Energy Blueprint is to help 1.000,000 people in the next 5 years recover their health and energy levels (and we’re on track to do that). I put tons of valuable content out to the world (much of it for free) to help people in the most powerful ways that I can.
(Note: I’m also about to make a big announcement of how we’re going to be donating a huge portion of our yearly revenue to a research lab to directly fund cutting-edge research into curing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. That way, everything I do with The Energy Blueprint is feeding back into scientific research that can ultimately benefit people’s health.)
Also, on this specific subject of red light therapy, I have developed expertise in this subject over nearly a decade of study. Then along comes people like this who steal your work and try to make a quick buck.
So here’s what I am asking of you: Please support the work that I do.
All it takes is a few minutes of your time. All you need to do is simply to write a review on my book. That is enough to help people differentiate between legitimate and highly valuable content vs. plagiarized garbage.
I am aware that the tendency is for each of you reading this to think “okay, well I’m busy… someone else will support Ari and do this… he doesn’t really need MY help.” You’re wrong. I need YOUR HELP. If everyone thinks “someone else will help,” then no one takes the time to help. So I truly need YOUR help to do this. Every single person’s words count. YOUR words count, and please know that I truly appreciate YOU taking a few minutes out of your day to support me and the work I do with The Energy Blueprint. Please know that your words and your support makes a difference in helping me help people recover their health, get their energy back and get their lives back. Please take a moment of your day to write a review of my book here.
Now let’s take a look at the specific plagiarized books and examples of plagiarism…
First of all, let me just post direct links to the names and titles of all the plagiarized books…
Here are the links to these plagiarized books:
- Sandra Moore: The Scientific Approach To Near-Infrared And Red Light Therapy: Weight Loss, Muscle Gain, Brain Optimization & Anti-Aging
- Sandra Moore: The Scientific Approach To Near-Infrared And Red Light Therapy: Weight Loss, Muscle Gain, Brain Optimization & Anti-Aging
- Ben Moore: Red Light Therapy Manual
- Ben Moore: Red Light Therapy Manual
- Ben Moore: Summary of The Ultimate Guide To Red Light Therapy by Ari Whitten
- Carol Jason: Accelerated Healing With Near-Infrared and Infra Red Light Therapy
- Laura Jason: Faster Healing With Near Infra-Red And Infra Red Light Therapy
- Johnny Coffield: Red Light Therapy: Beginners Step by Step Guide
- David M. Red Light Therapy For Arthritis: Complete beginners guide
- Jordan Gale: Red Light Therapy: Layman’s Guide
(Note: You can see that they weren’t even very creative with the names, and that it’s likely the same individual or two individuals responsible for ALL of these books. There’s Ben MOORE and Sandra MOORE. And there’s Carol JASON and Laura JASON.)
(The only one I am concerned about is Jordan Gale’s book because he is obviously paying people to write fake reviews of his book to give the impression that it’s legitimate. I have screenshots of the obviously fake reviews below…)
Examples of Plagiarism From Books By “Sandra Moore” and “Laura Jason”
Let’s first talk about a couple books by “Sandra Moore” and “Laura Jason” (both made-up people and fake names).
First, take a look at MY book description on the back cover of my book…
Now, look at their book descriptions…
Here’s Laura Jason’s intro paragraph of their book description:
Apart from the rampant grammatical mistakes, you can see that these two book descriptions are blatantly plagiarizing my book description.
Examples of Plagiarism From Books By “Ben Moore, RN”
Here’s one of the books by “Ben Moore, RN” (another fake name, and fake person)… Note: This person lists themselves as an “RN” (registered nurse) and then says that they’re a Cardiologist. Sorry, but nurses aren’t cardiologists. Again, obviously a sign of a fake name and a made-up person.
First, here is the cover…
The title of the book is basically a re-wording of my title. And the cover image is basically just a copy of Mark Sloan’s book, which you can see here:
(Note: Mark Sloan’s book is a legitimate book by a real person – NOT a plagiarized book.)
They copied the style of his book cover, then added the list of benefit bulletpoints on the cover, mimicking my book.
That by itself is not necessarily severe plagiarism, so let’s take a deeper look…
Inside this book by Ben Moore are numerous examples of directly plagiarizing my book.
To give just a few examples:
If you’ve read my book, then you probably recognize that a lot of this is just copied and re-worded from my book. (These are just a few of many examples).
But if that’s not enough…
Mr. “Ben Moore” has also now come out with a SECOND plagiarized version of my book, which claims to be a “Summary” of my book. It’s actually just an attempt to steal my work and make money off of it…
(Funny enough, the cover of the book also claims that it includes “101 delicious anti-inflammatory recipes.” Remember, this is a book on RED LIGHT THERAPY! Not a cookbook. Again, just showing that these are clearly professional plagiarists And lazy plagiarists at that.)
These are just blatant plagiarisms of my work.
Examples of Plagiarism FromThe Book By “Johnny Coffield”
Now, let’s talk about the plagiarism of my work from the book by “Johnny Coffield” titled “Red Light Therapy: Beginners Step by Step Guide on How to use Red Light Therapy.”
First, the cover is another blatant copy of my book cover…
Then, numerous sections of the book are just word for word plagiarism of my book or simply re-wording my writing…
Examples of Plagiarism From The Book By “Jordan Gale”
Now, let’s talk about another book by “Jordan Gale.” This is another plagiarized book, but one that copies some sections from me and some material from other people’s work. “Jordan Gale” is another person without an author biography, website, or any information that can be found anywhere about this person – i.e. another made-up person.
First, the title of my book is The Ultimate Guide to Red Light Therapy.
The title of “Jordan Gale’s” book is: Red Light Therapy: The Layman’s Guide to Self-Treatment with Red Light Therapy
Basically, it’s an equivalent title, and the subject matter of the book is setting out to do exactly the same thing as my book, which was published just a few weeks before – to be a guide to the subject of red light therapy.
Now that’s suspicious that another book also claiming to be a guide to red light therapy comes out just a few weeks after my book, but in itself is not enough to be plagiarism, so let’s look at what else was done…
Here is my book cover and their book cover, showing the obvious attempt to copy it…
The book cover is obviously an attempt to copy my book cover.
Then once they had people writing reviews on the book noting that they were plagiarizing my work, they changed the book cover so it would be less obvious (but they evidently didn’t even bother to proofread their title)…
(Side note: Please note that there are actually two spelling and grammar mistakes on their new cover. The book is also riddled with spelling and grammar mistakes, and has obviously not been edited or even proofread. This shows that there was basically no thought or attention put into the book, and thus it was an obvious plagiarism of someone just trying to quickly write something in a few days of work to try to make a quick buck.)
Then, there is the book description…
First, here is my book description on Amazon.com for reference…
NOW… read “Jordan Gale’s” book description below. You’ll see the same basic concept on the intro section. Then a mention of UV light. Then the line about the expense of a single treatment and how much red light therapy machines used to cost. Then, you’ll see my same bulletpoints basically just re-worded and switched around in their order. Here it is:
You can see that he basically just re-worded my book description, but all the same elements are still there.
Then there are various sections of the book that are basically just re-written versions of the content of my book, or plagiarized from online articles. Examples are too numerous to list here, but almost the entire content of the book is just re-worded content from my work and other people’s work. Here are just a few examples…
Their FAQ section at the end of their book largely just use all the same questions from my book and largely just re-word the answers…
This section here is plagiarized from Joovv’s article: https://joovv.com/blogs/joovv-blog/how-does-red-light-therapy-work
The reviews on this book are also obviously fake and clearly from paid Amazon review mills. (Info on this HERE on how merchants flood Amazon with fake reviews if you want to learn about it).
How do I know they’re fake reviews? Just take a look for yourself…
You can see multiple reviews even use the same exact language and even make the same spelling errors — e.g. “red light treatmen” and “less demanding to peruse than an examination paper.”
This is likely because the “author” gave them pre-written review templates to write their reviews from, so a lot of these people are clearly just copying and pasting.
Virtually all of them are from people who apparently barely speak English (and thus are unlikely to be seeking out a book written in English). A lot of them are also just totally nonsensical like “People who are interested in this types of book as well as immigration will most probably be interested in reading this book.” Or “The choice to start with pandas was interesting.”
There are other serious problems with this book beyond this beyond just plagiarism (and fake reviews)…
- NO STUDIES CITED IN THE ENTIRE BOOK.
The author (i.e. plagiarist) of this book makes reference to certain studies in the book. They try to mention several studies in the book (many of which are just lifted from my book) but don’t actually cite any of them. Again, this shows that this is obviously just something they paid a writer to throw together in a couple days when not even a single study is actually cited. They were too lazy to even copy and paste my scientific references.
E.g. They write things like “A 2013 study published in Lasers and Surgery Medicine”. But they never actually CITE a single study in the entire book. No citations to the specific research he is making reference to can be found anywhere on the page or in the bibliography. In fact, the bibliography just lists 16 online BLOGS (not scientific research) as the sources used for the book.
Not a single scientific study actually cited.
See here for the screenshot of their”Resources” page at the end of the book:
Again, the complete lack of any scientific references and proper citations just shows that this is not a real book by a real author who is trying to put out quality information on this topic. It is just a professional plagiarist stealing other people’s work and paying someone to re-word it all, throwing a book together in a few days, and then putting it on Amazon to try to make a quick buck.
There is another even more concerning problem with the book…
- Extremely DANGEROUS and hazardous recommendations.
Then they give a table of recommended dose guidelines:
Again, this person is advising treatment times that are 50 to 500 times greater than the research indicates is advisable!
These numbers are just made-up nonsense that the person threw together carelessly to give the impression of something “scientific” looking.
Let me be very clear: A person can cause irreparable harm to their body by trying to follow this advice.
So this is not only a matter of this book plagiarizing my work, but more importantly, that this book has the potential to seriously damage the health of anyone who might read it.
(Moreover, this person managed to display an incapacity to get things right even when plagiarizing someone else’s work.)
All of these facts make it clear that these books are not written by real people trying to put quality content into the world ti actually help people. They are written by professional plagiarists looking to make a quick buck by stealing other people’s hard work.
So What Can We Do About All Of This?
First of all, I have already reported copyright infringement of all these books to Amazon. So that part is taken care of. It remains to be seen whether Amazon will take these plagiarized books down.
But again, I need YOUR help…
Again, the best thing you can do to support me and my work with The Energy Blueprint is this: WRITE A REVIEW OF MY BOOK.
That’s all I need from you. If you appreciate the work I do and have benefitted from all the content I put out to the world (much of it for free), just please take 1-5 minutes out of your day to review my book. Please also keep your reviews focused on the book itself, rather than me as a person (though I certainly appreciate all the nice things that so many of you have said about me and my work).
The more reviews I get on my book, the bigger the distinction there is between my REAL book vs. all these plagiarized books.
So again, please take a couple minutes out of your day to write me a review. You can do that by clicking HERE.
(Note: To be clear, I am asking for REAL reviews from those of you who have actually bought and read the book. Please do not write a review unless you have actually bought and read the book.)
Thank you in advance for reading this, and for your support. Again, I dedicate a huge amount of time and energy into helping people. (We’re trying to help 1,000,000 people in the next 5 years recover their energy and their health.) It means so much to me (and the mission of The Energy Blueprint) to have your support, and truly makes a difference in helping people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.
