She Persisted, published May 30, features at least three of the same quotes from inspiring historical women including Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman and Nellie Bly that appear in Kimberleys book, along with similar images, the writer claims.
Quotes? So Chelsea copied your copying? Weak argument. And without looking at the two versions of the pictures I have no way of knowing if they were copied. Take it up with Chelsea's ghostwriter and publisher, because I doubt she even saw the text before it was publication ready.

He only needs to prove the dates of his writing, research, etc. When is the big deal. If he can prove his idea was written down before Chelsea’s, he wins. I work on my computer and do printouts which are proof of my writing with dates. That makes it my copyright.

Wrong. It's a well-established principle of intellectual property law that quoting or excerpting someone else's work creates a new work subject to copyright protection. If I write and illustrate a book called "The 10 Greatest Presidential Quotations," and someone rips of my work by producing a book with the same quotes and similar illustrations, that's plagiarism.
