I was asked by the editor of an on-line magazine

I was asked by the editor of an on-line magazine for photographers if I would write articles for his magazine on art and ideology. I wouldn't be payed and I had to write under a pseudonym because we shared our last name and he did not want to give the impression of nepotism. I accepted and wrote 3 articles under a pseudonym (one I have previously used for other reasons) and they are all still on-line. Yesterday, by chance, I happened upon a Linkedin site (I'm not subscribed) called Pulse and there it was : one of my articles, transcribed verbatim, but signed by the editor of the on-line magazine for which I wrote it. He wanted to make people believe that it was him that wrote it There were 9 "Likes" and 8 Comments, all laudatory of the article, from different professional photographers and gallery owners. The article was not copyrighted because I was working in good faith but I have numerous ways to show that it was me who wrote it and not him. He uses my article as his to promote himself. Do I have any recourse on what I see as blatant plagiarism?

I am a writer who is about to publish my first novel. 3

Hello. I am a writer who is about to publish my first novel. 3 years ago i had interesting email conversations with a friend and which extended for more than a year back and forth. While my Novel's main idea and characters are original and fully created by me; some conversations in the novel i excerpted from things my friends said in those emails (about topics relating to life, spirituality, currency etc..) This is just cause I like his choice of wording even though the ideas were not his. I liked how he expressed ideas. Does this fall under artistic appropriation or should I expect that one day (if the novel gets popular for example) that my friend will come forth and accuse me of steeling his words and present email proof of that? Also if using his exact words in some chapters poses an issue of Plagiarism, would mentioning him in a 'thank you' note somewhere in the novel's introductory pages be a good remedy.
