Hello fellow Hubbers --
One of my Hubs was recently marked with a "c" and reads "possibly copied by someone else." What should I do about this? Are there steps I should take or will Hubpages look into it? Thanks!
Open your hub and look at the top where you will see a sentence, usually in yellow that indicates you have a copyright problem. Click on it and it will tell you exactly who stole your work. Once you have this info, you can file a DMCA complaint. You can find directions for doing this in the Learning Center.
There has to be a better way to file complaints than what we have now. It's so ridiculously time-consuming and complex. I absolutely hate the current system it doesn't feel like 2016.
This happened to me too sometimes back.
Please click the following link. You can see my forum post where I wrote about the problem, the advices I received from fellow hubbers and how we solved the problem.
