I invented a word several years ago. It was unique and I paid for the yearly domain .com. I have paid a yearly fee to own the site. My info has been in plain view to the world through Icann since owning it. I see that someone has copyrighted the word 2016(after me) and made a web site with a few letters in front of my word ie: From Pi###ck.com to Shop-Pi####ck.com. 1. They plagiarized my name and made a copyright. 2. Based on this copyright could they give me a cease and desist order and take my site? What is me recourse?

Please help clarify what is true.2) If I write a book,, bind it and donate it to the local library. Is it protected against plagiarism or do I need a publisher to register my stuff as copyright to protect it?3. Does getting an ISBN makes the written material copyright and thus protected?

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?
