Hello to all fellow writers,
the following site Pitlane Magazine (pitlanemagazine.com) has stolen several articles of mine. They've been doing this for a while, considering that one article dates back to my Helium days. You may want to find out if they took anything from you. At this point, I'm gathering whatever information I can in order to report them. If you've dealt with them, however, and you have the proper information to get the ball rolling against this site.
p.s. The site chose its name wisely. It is very close in name to a legitimate website about racing.
Send them an invoice for each stolen article.

And, it appears they had targeted Helium...meaning they culled these articles for three or four years (although most of these articles were published on their sites in 2015 and early 2016).
To date I found more articles. The remainder had been taken down before Helium went belly-up and they haven't been re-posted by me since then.
I've used whois.com...which helped for a site like this. Still, it's annoying,...

I just got an email from Helium. They're shutting down on 12/15. If you have earnings there, request them now!I'm not surprised H is coming to an end. It's a shame, though, because it was the first place I wrote online....

Authors can delete the articles they don't want at the site, dependent on certain conditions. They have a list of articles that need improvement.I have several #1 articles on the list. lol

Since Helium only buys one time rights, and HubPages lets you keep your rights, do the two work well together? If so/not, is there a combination (involving hubpages) that people like to use?
