I went over to Amazon.com to see how many books have been written about storage auctions and I was amazed at how many there were, 48 in all. I couldn't take some of them seriously just based on the titles alone. Some of them are poorly written e-books with 40 pages or less. One has to wonder which, if any, truly educate the reader.

I guess I'd only need the "how to make boxes of cash" book.......if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about the rest!

Out of curiosity do you know how many of those on the list have an affiliate program attached to the sale?

No, I don't. I hadn't even heard of 30 of these books before.

store me makes a good point. i would say 30% of the books are really vague and basically nothing but a sales presentation for you to buy their program for $99 that gives you inventory sheets and a bunch of other stuff you cna find free online. im not knocking anyone as i have my own storage auction book and lets be honest pretty much any how to guide is rehashed info you can find free on the net but as long as its a good written book someone consolidates all that info for you so you dont have to search it all out individually.

my book is how to make money with storage unit auctions. it was on the list. i dont have any upsells for programs its just the book. i sell mine on amazon for 2.99 however i offer it free to prime members as a kindle download and i also run the specials giving it away for free as often as they will let me.

i havn't really made too much of a marketing push to sell my book and just recently laoded it up to the kdp kindle marketplace on amazon. i think glendon cameron really led the pack in terms of books nad youtube vids and stuff but i feel like i was one of the first people out there with an ebook as my ebook was out before any of the tv shows came on.

does someone have to buy a book? absolutely not, someone could browse this forum for a half hour and be prepared to go to their first auction but some people like all the info to be consolidated and neatly packaged for them and find value in paying for that.

Yeah, I agree. The book we have been working on should be complete in the next few weeks and then I'll begin marketing it. It would be great if I could find a publisher but I'm not holding my breath mainly because of the amount of competition and the fact that interest in storage auctions is slowing. Of course it will be available in several digital formats, but I will also be contracting with a company that prints and ships single copies of books for customers that prefer something tangible.

This isn't a get rich quick book but a practical guide to making a living in the storage auction business. There will be a ton of content and I think that it touches on everything that is important for a storage auction buyer to know. Hopefully, people will benefit from a thorough book that doesn't sugar coat the storage auction business.

TC, look forward to your book comming out, always enjoyed your blog and thought it was quality content so would love to give the book a read. If you wanna send over a copy pm me and I'd be happy to give it a read and a review and a plug on FreeStorageAuctionLists. Also, if your looking for affiliates to sell the book for you I'd be interested in doing that as well. I imagnie you already know this but would recommend commission junction or clickbank.

Is anyone familiar with the laws relating to plagiarism? Here is my question.

If Glendon Cameron can publish a book called "Storage Auctions 101 The Beginners Guide To Storage Auction Profits" a year and a half after I publish "Storage Auctions 101 - A beginner's guide to storage unit auctions," Does that mean I can publish a book using one of his titles and just change a word or two? Not that I would want to or anything.

Here's the title of Glendon's next book. "Making Money A-Z by plagiarising other book titles" It has a nice ring to it.

No, I haven't read his book. I'm not sure about the copyright infringement laws but common sense would say yes.

The title of my old ebook is Storage Auctions 101 - A beginner's guide to storage unit auctions.

The title of his book is Storage Auctions 101 - The beginners guide to storage auction profits.

Even though a few words are different in the subtitle, he totally ripped off my title.

That would be like me writing a book and calling it "Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Underpants" or "Star Wars Revenge of the Jet Eye."

My take on it would be the title similarity would pass.

How many titles can you come up with for a certian subject.  Look at movies.....or text books.....

I think it would be the content that mattered.

Think about it.

Movies....Total Recall (1990)....Total Recall (2012)  Same title, basic theme but variations.  In that case they probably bought the rights and tuned it up for the present.

In the case of the written word however it certainly would be (IMO) a matter of the bulk of the content being lifted from the original author's work. As Alias said...how many variations can you have of French 101, or Basics of Biology, or True Love or Dangerous Minds ?

Yeah, I see your point. It's not like it really matters. The only down side is that I can't use my title because people would assume it was Glendon's book.

If you wanted to write a cookbook specializing in Chinese food, does that mean no where in the title could you use the words "cook chinese food" just because their are already 10,000+ Chinese cookbooks out there?

I think your arguement would be rational if the title of your book was "How to make money using Quantum Physics and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Storage Auctions" and then Glendon or someone else wrote a book titled "How Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Quantum Physics made me millions in storage auctions!"

Your book title is very simple, common, and easily reproduced without anyone needing to "steal" it from you.

I did a little home work on this and you're absolutely right. The content is what really counts in plagiarism cases.

Since I haven't read his book, I wouldn't know if any of the content was taken from my book. I guess all I would have to do is look for paragraphs that had correct punctuation, spelling and grammar. :D
