What you and every single person that has sent me emails and called my phone making threats fails to understand is that Lendink DOES NOT lend your property to anyone. We are not taking business away from you or any other person or entity.
All of the lending took place on Amazon or Barnes and Nobles. All Lendink did was provide the two parties interested IN YOUR BOOK a link back to Amazon or Barnes and Noble. NO TRANSACTIONS OCCURED ON LENDINK.
If you receive money from book lends from the Amazon Prime Service then you get the money from books shown on Lendink. If we are guilty of anything, it is the promotion of your book.
This is really getting out of hand very quickly. I am deeply concerned that threats are being send to those that took part in the Lendink.com suspension.
I wish no ill will towards any of these people, no matter how misguided they are. They stood up and fought for their rights as the copyright owner and I respect that. I don't agree with what they did to me but I respect the fact that they thought they were protecting their property, just as I must now fight for my property. This should not however result in threats to persons.
Please, stop the threats of harm.
