Yes, sometimes I get lazy and just do all of my Wordpress articles in one day, then I change the time and date so they look like they were published on different days. I guess there would be no way to prove that a hub was published first. But like you said Lifefusion, I am not sure about other blogging platforms and if it's possible to change the time and date their article was published. I also publish on Squidoo and a lot of my articles were copied. Squidoo doesn't just flag my original articles but they help us go after the website and get it shut down for stealing our original work.
Everyone, I already told you from the beginning of my post that I've been here twice before. This current account is already my third. So I made that point clear to avoid your mind doing a wild imagination as you did.
I was banned twice as I said, one for a topic not allowed and another for duplicate reasons. I contacted the admin before, but no one answered. Instead, they banned me from the site. I thought the site now is better than it was before so I returned, only to find seasoned writers leaving and jumping boats because the site is getting worse, I guess.
Oh, but he is, Beth, he is! I have a real photo. It's a bit blurry as I was running from the police while I shot it - but you can see all of Mark Ewbie's hotness in it, for sure. British police are so uptight. I TOLD them that Mark and I were bosom internet friends.
They can't. It isn't their job anyway. No hosting site can protect your copyright. As the owner of your content it is your responsibility anyway. This has been the way it was since the inception of copyright laws.
In short, if you own it- it is your responsibility to protect it.
That's how copyright works in pretty much every creative venue, in every nation and internationally (for as much as international copyright laws are enforceable anyway). You are asking HP to do something that virtually nobody else does.
Rather than getting outraged because an automated program found a duplicate, you could calmly inform hubstaff that they had copied it from your previous account (which normally gets the flag removed) and file DMCAs with the infringing users of your material.
If it was there before the hub was, the hub is the duplicate.
If the original, owned by the OP, is now gone then the stolen copy is now the original, with no way to prove otherwise. If HP allows it to remain then they are guilty of allowing stolen material on the site.
Remind me never to start a thread 'I'm leaving Hubpages very soon!!!' How could staff not resist banning him for the 3rd time? Incidentally, Hubpages staff - if you ban ever Mark Ewbie then I will leave! (I think I may live to regret that remark!)
Oops.. I guess Simone is a girl... lol Yeah, I guess I've seen that picture a hundred times before, but I never read the profile and have never seen the long hair. I just thought it to be strange that a man would be wearing a hat like that. Now, I understand. lol
As a Newbie, I am disappointed that you were unable to resolve your issues with HP. I have publishd only one article. My second article was put on non-pub status because of a link violation. Even though I replaced the link with a more appopriate one, I was advised that the non-pub status could not be reversed. Now, it has been deleted. I wish that it was possible to communicate directly with the Administration re problems. HP members helped me to resolve my issue by takng respnsibility for getting my post out there by going with the flow and doing something different.
I regret that you have been banned for the third time. It is obvious to me that you really like being a part of the HP community as you have returned after being banned on two occassions. I would recommend that you assess your behaviors and make an intention to change your thinking and your life circumstances. Discovering the role you have played in causing your failures will enable you to experience success in your next venture.
I am getting the feeling that someone can steal our hubs and publish them elsewhere and change the date to one earlier than when our hubs were written and this way it looks like we are copying them instead of the other way around and we are flagged for duplicate content.
Maybe it's time to include a copyright notice at the end of every hub we write but that actually means nothing as others can still steal our work and publish it elsewhere. There really seems to be no way to protect our work.
I've been with Google Adsense for a number of years now. At no time have I ever had any problems with them. I have always fully understood the rules and policies set forth by Google. I have also always taken it very...
Now that we have our own domains, can someone claim that our username infringes their copyright? I have been contacted by someone that claims that my username and site infringes their copyright as it is their company...
