You'd have to file a complaint in court and then issue a subpoena to the platform provider to release info about the account-holder. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire an attorney.
The 6 month rule is less a rule and more of a guideline. Especially during these times, I certainly would make sure you had information about how COVID and travel restrictions have impacted your ability to be in the US. It will come down to whether you intended to abandon...Read more »

If the printed version appearing in 2020 is the same as the 2019 version, then it sounds like they are the same work just offered in another format, such a hardback book and a paperback. If there are changes between the 2 versions, you could note two copyright dates in the later version. You...Read more »
