I received a copyright on one of my hubs the problem has been taken care of what do I do now to get the © symbol off?
IN Edit mode, I hope, you can just remove that mark and resubmit.
Edit the hub that it © symbol is on the right side click on
Copyright -no notice- / © 2013 your name
If the copy was removed after you filed a DMCA complaint, then be patient. The © symbol will automatically be removed when HP checks again. If you click on "Copied Hubs" on your account page, you'll see when it was last checked. It's not checked that often, so all you need to do is wait. There is not way to turn it off yourself.
If someone ELSE has stolen your content, and you've got the content removed, you'll need to wait till Hubpages does their next check before the C will be removed.
I did go into the edit mode and there doesn't seem to be much I can do about it so I guess your right I just have to wait for it to come off. Many of my hubs have been copied and I have never received a copyright on here now I get one and it's my own YouTube for this hub.
I have that symbol on one of my hubs, but I don't really care. It wasn't copied without my permission, so I don't see any harm in it.
If you have the © symbol in your stats report, click the "copied hubs" link in the link list at the top left of the stats page. This will show you where the copy is. It also has a link to help you file your DMCA complaint.
Not all copied hubs are caught by HubPages. It's a good idea for you to keep a watch out for it, especially for those hubs that have high traffic. An way way to find stolen copies is to copy and paste a line of text from your article into Google search.
If you had an Editor's Choice hub that was stolen, see: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/118348

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a...

Periodically I notice a downturn in the traffic to one or more hubs, which leads me to Google the beginning or sections of it/them in search of content theft. Now HP is helping with this chore by notifying us of...

I have a problem. Encyclopedial.com has reprinted about a dozen of my articles, word for word, with no credit to me and without permission, and just keeps scooping more out of my hubpages. I cannot find anything on the...

Under 'my account'? I've had this happen for two hubs that were copied but the copyright symbol appeared next to the title at the same time (or I noticed it at the same time). Luckily, I got the content removed as it...

I just ran across a site, radikewl dot com, that had copied another hubber's hub that I had a comment on. The entire hub, including comments, is translated into Spanish. No author is named. That led me to do a search...

All the little copyright tags have disappeared from my hubs, except for the one that is a duplicate that I have elsewhere. Of course, that doesn't mean there are still copies out there but it feels good for a bit.
