Has anyone discovered their travel Hubs stolen by this site? Have Hubpages notified you yet?
They've copied loads of mine.
Thanks for posting. Yes, I just found one of mine. No, I wasn't notified with a copy alert from HP. It looks like they have used a translator. Have you tried using the contact email? My copyright is still at the bottom. sigh. It's clearly obvious these are all stolen articles.
I simply sent the email and just received a response. Here it is:
Thank you for your letter.
Sorry for this situation - i removed your article from the site. The articles on the site are published by our team of writers, and, unfortunatelly i cannot always control if they were stollen because they change text and it passes CopyScape check, so i cannot see if it is not original.
> I suggest you also remove shinkicker's hubs
Can you please tell me what articles on this site are shinkicker hubs, so i can remove them and fine the writers that published it.
Thank you and Happy New Year
I had asked him to also remove your articles, but as you can see, they go through a system that passes copyscape. If you want to contact him, I believe it's safe. Mine is already removed within minutes. Good luck, and thanks again for posting. If you want, I can send you his email via your HP mail address.
You're welcome. Hope it gets worked out. Let us know.
Happy new year to you!
Thanks for the heads-up on this, and I am glad they were responsive. Based on the language in the message you got, it does sound like there's some translation going on. I will check my travel hubs.
Well, I checked the site further and went through the first five articles listed on the side bar. Apparently the 'team of writers' have discovered HP. They are all taken from HubPages; vocalcoach, silvershark, prarieprincess, Amanda Severn, Chuck, go-barbara-go... I suggest anyone who has travel articles to check the site.
There are no ads on the site.
Yes, strange. I just checked the site to see if the one travel piece I published is on. It isn't. But I had a quick look through the site and was also surprised to see no ads. I wonder what the point is? Unless the owner wants to build up a big library and then start monetizing?
If there's a multitude of hubs on here, maybe a DMCA is in order?
