Site Copying Hubs

    A weird document sharing site has at least one of my hubs, I noticed they seem to have a lot of other hubs. The hubs are available for "download" here. I don't understand the purpose of this site, but I do know it infringes on our copyrights.

    docstoc.com/profile/besthubs

    It looks to be a fairly innocent site, just a bad uploader.
    They have a handy DMCA form you can fill out if you see your work there.

        I googled my subdomain to see what would come up. I found it several pages into the the search results.

        The document hosting site was very professional and removed the infringing material quickly. A++ Would report again!

    Melanie, thanks for this. I'm not convinced it's innocent though, since on the hub I've had copied they've gone to the bother of slightly changing it - even though they haven't removed "Melovy all rights reserved."
    The changes they've made make no sense either, though some of them are quite amusing, such as, "That's received that pesky human off the beaten track," instead of "That's got that pesky human out of the way." (My copied story is narrated by a cat.)
    So, after laughing at their silly spun document, I will file a DMCA. Thanks for the heads up.
