    Just found 2 of my hubs copied here by this blogger at http://fatema-taher.blogspot.in/
    since some time I've been experiencing a loss of traffic in some hubs of mine that have been doing very well for a long period of time. Since the drop was a continuous one I put a paragraph of one of my hub in Google search and the search returned this site. Clicking on the link took me to my copied hub.
    This blogger has copied 2 of my hubs in almost their entirety, with a line or a few words omission here and there. I have experienced quite a severe drop in traffic on both hubs.
    I'd request other hubbers too to see if she has copied their hubs!
    Hubber sunasia 22 too has found one of her hubs copied in its entirety there. This blogger goes by the name of Dr.Fatema Mandviwala and you can find her on Google+ here

      File a DMCA complaint with Google and it will be removed quickly.  I have had several of mine stolen in recent months and Google is pretty quick to take action, particularly on blogs.

      I'm sorry to hear you had your work copied, rajan jolly! Props on being proactive about handling the issue.

    It is painful to note that our hard works are copied by some persons.  I strongly recommend you to report the case with Google and take necessary steps to block it.  If we all take quick action as you have done, we can to some extent put an end or at least control this bloody practice being done by some cheap writers.  At any cost the stolen works should be removed without any leniency.

    This is so disturbing! I really feel bad about your hubs being copied. I wouldn't even know if my hubs are being copied. Since you suggested a method to do that, I will try to do that. Google only can help in stopping this kind of Plagiarism.

    Rajan, I know how you feel. For years I've had stuff copied from my websites, articles, Hubs, and so on. Although I haven't filed a complaint with Google, I've contacted the owners of whichever site they've appeared on and been successful in some, ignored in others.

    It was really taking up a lot of my time so I've more or less stopped doing it now because, even if you shut them down in one place, they just pop up again with another username and email address and continue plagiarizing your stuff, as has happened to me.

    But, as I write this, I'm thinking, maybe the best way is only to go after the ones that are ahead of you in the SERPS and file a DMCA complaint with Google.

      I would definitely not wait to let get ahead in the SERP's.  Far better to file as soon as it's found.

    Received message from Google that the copied hubs have been removed. I would suggest hubbers to file a DMCA as soon as they find that their hubs have been copied. Thanks.
