    Did you have it copywritten before it was plagiarized?

    Do what Wondergirl suggested. Penguin Random House is a giant publisher operating world-wide. They will handle plagiarism of their published works, initiate law suits if necessary, and do whatever is necessary to protect copyrights.

    Your job will be to sit back and sip a Daiquiri while the Random House lawyers do their thing.
