Poaching of Coloring Book Titles Knows No Limits

As a follow up to our breaking story last night on an Amazon subsidiary “borrowing” the title of the number one bestselling adult coloring book from Christian Art Gifts, we learn that the company has actually poached the title of five top selling books in the popular, still-trending category. Affected publishers in the examples noted below are from Waterbook, Baker Books, Harvest House, Christian Art and Paige, Tate & Co.

    I’m not 100% following. Are you saying that someone is plagiarizing the titles to sell whatever their book is about?

      It’s not just the title. These are also adult coloring books. They seem to be trying to divert customers to their own product, which I am assuming — although anything goes at this point — are different content.
