It reinforced the wisdom of my decision not to make a penny out of '60 Reasons' nor out of the name 'Madeleine McCann' in any shape or form though there are many others who have done so.
I am no expert on Mike Hitchen but this, assuming it to be true, is very revealing:

Mike Hitchen Profits on Madeleine McCann
You heard it here First
For several weeks Mike Hitchen has been claiming he had new ventures ahead, systems in place, ready to unleash at the right time. He claimed that with these new ventures he would make alot of money.
To quote Hitchen from his secret forum
"I will not be neglecting Madeleine McCann, in fact over the last few weeks I have put several systems in place ready to unleash at the right time."
(Yup, been very busy Hitchen, buying five dollar domain names)
"you've got to be in it to win it"
(Oh of course, $$$$$$$)
"Over a period of a few weeks, it will bring in enough until I am 55, at which age I can retire and collect my Super"
(We have always known you were in it for the money, at long last everyone else will now know)
"As for the other one, that's under wraps for now, wouldn't want the little non-achievers shuffling around in the slums of their little slum cities getting jealous"
Opppppppppsssssss Maggot, did we just reveal your big secret? Us non-achievers? Hehehehehehehe
Us so called non achievers have discovered Hitchens plot to make money off the name of Madeleine McCann and others.
Mike Hitchen has purchased domain names in order to resell to the highest bidder.
He created most of these in May of this year and immediately put them up for sale here

We have always known that Mike Hitchen did his best to make money from the innocent name of Madeleine McCann while at the same time fuelling hatred to others for doing the same thing. Did you want it all for yourself Hitchen?
It is clear that Mike Hitchen purchased these Domains recently and immediately put them up for sale for a massive profit.
The domain, themadeleinemccannstory.com AND .co.uk were created on 17th May 2008 as you can see here in this Link. Probably purchased for $5 or less. He is selling themadeleinemccannstory for $350,000 for the .com domain and $90,000 for the .co.uk domain.
The term used for con men as such, is "Cybersquatting" according to the United States federal law known as the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, is registering, trafficking in, or using a domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else. The cybersquatter then offers to sell the domain to the person or company who owns a trademark contained within the name at an inflated price. Link
What Mike Hitchen is doing is illegal. Madeleine McCann is a trademark as far as I am aware and I would advise everyone reading this to please inform the families of the above domain names so that they can take the appropriate action against this known pervert cybersquatter, Mike Hitchen.
Perverts and con men who make money from the sad misfortune of others need to be stopped today. It has now been proven that, Hitchen, the self acclaimed voice for Madeleine McCann, is trying to make a Massive Profit for selling her Name. A massive profit that he hopes to retire on.
Well Hitchen, I hope you can sleep at night, with your pockets full of those dollar signs you love so much, the dollars you will make from the sale of an innocent, still missing, little girl, Madeleine McCann. The little girl you have claimed to be a voice for. Now we have proven without a doubt what you really think of Madeleine McCann.

I don't believe for one minute that the Madeleine Foundation was out to make money despite Debbie Butlers fingers bleeding from typing. I have had far more than my moneys worth in literature from them and if Ms Butler doesn't believe that then that is tough!
Maybe we should start a list of all those books/leaflets that we received from the Madeleine Foundation that we DIDN'T have to pay for just to redress the balance.
