I had done a lot of work on the unofficial internationals of 1870-71, researching and identifying who the players were, and published the findings in the book. So this reprobate takes my original research, and within two weeks of publication he posts it on Wikipedia for all the world to see. He's been careful to give some references to my book, but if the information is published on the web it takes away a strong reason for people to purchase it. I've asked him to stop, but he has just ignored my email. Breach of copyright? Probably not, as you can't copyright a fact. But hugely annoying.
