Republishing a Hub (Poem)

    Somebody (not a hubber) has contacted me with regards to one of my poems which he wants to use as college material. I am competely happy with this, but he also wants to publish my poem on his blog (crediting me as the author). Is this ok or will it cause duplicate issues - or will it be ok with a link back? I realise this is not the best way to earn from it but I am mostly interested in the exposure.

        No, that's right they won't smile I had a different poem stolen once and would have been completely unaware had I not decided to check myself. Cheers smile

    Absolutely NO! If they publish it online, it will be duplicate.

    They could write a snippet and then put your link in the snippet, or use one of the links widgets like they have on blogger, but that is it.

      Yes, I was going to go down that line but thought I would check - since it wouldn't be me publishing it and  clearly I would have published it first (it's over a year old). I've got a feeling it's already been republished once, on a Facebook page, but I can't remember who by. It's on a topical issue, so people who want to raise awareness sometimes become interested in it and I like that. Thanks, anyway smile

    And as a personal note, side rant, Yahoo Voices will!!!

      You mean Yahoo Voices unpublishes original work if someone steals it? That's a bit much!
