[meteorite-list] meteorite database disk?

I've just gotten an unsigned email (from an unfamiliar email address)
offering a "meteorite database" on disk, for $4.00 (ostensibly the disk is
free, but there's a $4.00 shipping/handling charge. Gee, I wonder how many
people won't figure THAT out!) Anyway, this anonymous sender included a few
"entries" from this database in his email offer. I took a look at my copy of
ARN "Space Rocks" and the entries match EXACTLY, down to a punctuation error
and a misspelled "schrcibersite" (sorry, Ken!). It appears that someone is
perfectly willing to make copies of "Space Rocks" and go into business for
himself. I sent this person an email, asking if he/she had permission from
ARN (and asking for an identity), but I have not gotten a response.
1) Ken Regelman, are you aware of this?
2) Is anyone ELSE around here aware of this?
