    You found the title to my book on the internet. You decided to copy my title simply because you believed it to be a good name for your “simple clue.” However, more than that, you have been heavily advertising your “simple club” to have serious negative impact upon the potential sales of the original book I wrote. That was an extremely selfish motivation on your part. A “simple Club?” That is very doubtful. There are thousands of other names that you could have invented instead of copying the name of my book to use it as the title of your supposedly “simple club.” A bunch of journalist students is not a “simple club.”

    Your motivations are rotten.

    See you in court.

    CHANGE THE NAME. Then you will not be accused of copyright infringement and cause no further harm to the author whose title you stole. TOO SIMPLE FOR YOU TO COMPREHEND?
