Why do some Hubbers include a copyright notice at the bottom of their hub?


Is this absolutely necessary to protect your work? Isn't there an implied right once the work has been published? Or is it because some Hubbers may be freelance writers and want the work attributed to them properly?

    Thanks for your answer ThePracticalMommy.

    Out of curiosity, have you issued many DCMA notices thus far?

    I've had articles scraped from my websites but have just let it go. Am wondering whether I should be more pro-active in protecting my work.

    Also send a DMCA notice to the host (if USA) who will remove the content, which is often automatically scraped. Although the perpetrator will lose their Adsense account, you'd be surprised how many accounts can be 'bought' if you know where to look!

    Thanks LillyGrillzit for taking the time to reply. After reading yours and The PracticalMommy's response, I am now more inclined to add a copyright notice at the end of my hubs.

    Thanks once again!
