Original Content Question

    I have looked around, but I haven't seen this answered in the Learning Center.  I know our work here has to be original on-line content.  Three years ago I wrote a series of articles for a magazine that has both a hard copy version and a digital version.  When I do a Google search for a section of my articles, I do get a link to the digital version.

    However, this digital magazine requires a subscription to see the articles.

    Does Hubpages consider content not original even if it is only available via subscription on-line?  As the copyright has returned to me, will offering a free version here on Hubpages be considered original or not?

    Thanks!!!

      If the info is not publicly available online, we won't find it to be duplicate. Just make sure to verify that you gave the magazine non-exclusive rights so that you don't encounter copyright issues when you re-publish the work! big_smile

        Oh excellent!!!  I really thought I wouldn't be able to publish it here.  I have several people who want to read the articles but don't have access to the on-line subscription archives.  Yes, I rechecked the writer's guidelines, and the rights are non-exclusive.  I'm going to work on getting those hubs out!! smile

      Yes, thanks Simone!!  I did e-mail them, but never heard back.  I suspect I chose the wrong e-mail address, but it was all I could find.  I knew Simone is really good about replying in the forums, although I don't know how she can keep up with all of these threads and do any other work. smile
