How long do I get to file DMCA notices before HubPages does something to the affected Hubs and what is it that they do?
For example, if I go into the hospital for a week and then I use what working time I have for paying work for a week or so afterward, will I come back to see the hubs that are victims of plagiarism penalized by HubPages in some way and how?
HP does not penalize you if someone copies your Hub. They provide the little red (c) just to let you know you have been copied and you can take action as you see fit.
There are of course issues with copies of your Hubs floating around out there as far as search engines are concerned, so taking steps to remove plagiarized content where appropriate not only helps you but HP as a whole.
That is great!
Once again, I'm reminded of how much more awesome HubPages policies are than those of that site that went down the tubes a few months ago!
The notices have been so plentiful that I was starting to freak out, thinking scrapers were going to get my hubs unpublished if I fell too far behind on filing DMCA reports and sending DMCA notices.
Thank you for the explanation.
I've been penalised for someone else's theft. My hub was removed.
I did, however, appreciate HP sending me the 3 places where my work was copied
as far as i know, HP does not get involved with this at all. It's up to each individual hubber to take care of these issues.
