Stolen Content: Does anyone know this website?

    I really like the HubPages feature that warns you when your content may have been stolen, and it even provides you with the outline for sending DMCA notice to the offending website.

    Several of my Hubs were scraped and posted on this site, but I cannot find the 'owner'. Has anyone had any success in reaching the right owner or host? WordPress denies any affiliation or responsibility.

    Though I don't want to send any more traffic to this thief -- especially since some of my content on this ranks higher in Google than my original Hub -- here is the link so you can see URL.

    I guess their solution for 'making money online' is to post the content created by others.

      Thank you, Colorfulone.  I've tried sending notes to Steve Baldry, but the email is not valid.

        If the information he provided to the host is not valid, report it to ICANN and they will yank the domain name. I've done that on many occasions when I the email is invalid. ICANN doesn't mess around.
