I am a new hubber and I've seen many existing hubbers complain about their content being stolen or used without their permission. I wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions or tips to ensure our content is not stolen. Thanks!!
You cannot prevent it being stolen. What you can do, though, is watch for it and immediately take steps to have the stolen material removed. File a DMCA on anything you find.
You can create Google alerts for each of your hub titles to find stolen hubs and get email notifications any time Google finds them on other sites.
Go to https://www.google.com/alerts
In addition, you can also have your own copyright notice at the bottom of each hubs, stating something like:
© 2016 YOUR AUTHOR NAME - You may link to this article, but you may Not copy it. Copied content will be reported with a DMCA notice and will be removed.
Wow! Thanks a million! This seems like a pretty effective way! I will definitely go with this option!

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?
