I might be a little pissed if someone was profiting from my hours of donated work.
I'm not claiming copyright, but my work was donated to esspc-ebooks.com - no one has the right to profit from my labor (or Ken Mattern's) without my (our) permission.
It would be the same as if someone were taking books from the MR library and selling them on Amazon without alteration.
There might not be a legal recourse, but telling people to knock it off is perfectly legitimate.
