    I have a hub that was stolen. I never check for stuff like that - but HP does; and they told me about it months ago. Along with this blurb: Unfortunately, we do not yet have DMCA information stored for encyclopedial.com. If you are able to locate a DMCA instructions URL or an email contact for that site please let us know, we will add them to our database.

    Shortly after learning about this; I did a LITTLE bit of research, found the business origin - AND informed HP as was suggested above:

    Thank you. That information has been added to our DMCA contact database.
    Regards,
    Someone @ Team HubPages

    And yet, I just received another warning via the 2nd check that my content has not been removed (yes, I sent the site the suggested letter); along with this warning AGAIN: Unfortunately, we do not yet have DMCA information stored for encyclopedial.com. If you are able to locate a DMCA instructions URL or an email contact for that site please let us know, we will add them to our database.

    What gives, HP? Is this database active/being added to or what?

      It was added to the database, but it appears that the message will not match if the case of the website is not the same. I changed the database to lowercase so hopefully that should match now.

      They stole one of mine also last week.  I sent them a DMCA notice and they responded by telling me the plagiarized article had been removed within 24 hours.  I checked, and sure enough it had.  I notified the team that this happened and the copyright notice was removed.
