I notice that Hub Pages does not put a date on the articles when they are published like some other sites do. When I first started writing on the internet, someone told me to just put a copyright notice, date and my name at the bottom of my articles. With all of the stealing of articles, should we do that here?
If you make the original publication date public, the content thieves steal that too.
Relache is absolutely right, but just in case you don't already know: When your hub is in edit mode, go to the right sidebar where you'll see 'Display Options'. Open this, and you'll see the option to add a copyright notice.
Thank you for the answers. I found it and will start adding it to all of my articles. It is nice also that it shows when the article was last updated.

Since there has been a number of cases of stolen HP content, and the upcoming feature, I was thinking that instead of all hubbers creating a Copyright notice, maybe HubPages could create an automatic message that shows...
