The titles became part of IngramSpark's parent company's distribution network, the Ingram Content Group, which supplies thousands of retailers with physical books of all kinds. IngramSpark printed and sold 56 copies of "The Art of Assembly Language" over the next three months. Amazon ordered many of them.

In late 2016, No Starch had found a fake of one of his books, "The Linux Command Line," on Amazon. A few months later, "Python for Kids: A Playful Introduction to Programming" and, as the publisher said, at least three more.
Phil Ollila, Chief Content Officer of Ingram Content Group, admitted that he had not done so, according to No Starch, the copyright owner, that his rights were violated. "That seems to be polite, right?" He said.
