I had an unpublished article from Demand Media that when I tried to publish it on HubPages it was flagged as a duplicate. If I were to publish my Hubs in an ebook, I think I would have to avoid showing any page (the' look inside' portion) that is already on HubPages. Does anyone agree with that?
I am about to publish my first volume of poetry in book form and I have been told it won't affect my hubs. Other writers here have already done this. Your hubs should be a good "taster" or example of what your book has to offer. If you can generate interest in your writing here, then there is no reason why, with tweets, likes, shares, links and bookmarks on the web - it cannot also be successful in book form.
The trick is to not replicate your writing on other pages in the net that can be indexed by search engines, which may penalize the user. Follow common sense of not duplicating your work elsewhere online and you should be fine. You should copy protect your work.
I would argue that there is an ethical case to be made for not charging money for something available in full and for free online, unless you inform the reader of that fact. Also, stuff available elsewhere for free cannot be sold on Amazon.
Actually, if you own the copyright you can sell stuff which is already available online at Amazon. I would definitely tell someone that it is available for free. But many might want all the information in one place and are willing to pay for it.
This is contrary to Amazon policy as of 2012. They do not accept material freely available online or public domain material. And if they find it they will price match your title to $0.00 or delete it depending on whether they accept you are the copyright holder.
I have a book that consists of articles from another website. They did unpublish it, but all I had to do was prove that I was the copyright holder and it was published again.

I want to take a series of my hubs and publish them as an e-book on a niche topic that I write about. Can I do this or would I have to unpublish those hubs here?It seems that it would be OK to do this?
I published an article I had published on another site and it now says "duplicate" in my stats.....Does this site not allow you to publish contnetn you have published elsewhere? Appreciate any help anyone...
I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...
I hope I'm allowed to ask this question ! I make only pennies on my hubs. Granted only a few are evergreen, but I'm wonder if I would be better off taking one of my everygreen hubs which would lend itself...
